Opening Ceremony

 

 

On the evening of 18 September, the Opening Ceremony started at 19:30.

This championship was fully supported by the Education Department of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Sports Bureau of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Ningxia Football Association, and other related departments.

 

 

Different from the traditional march-in, the combined team march-in highlighted the Ceremony, that is, the Cheering team came into the field first and then cheered as the futsal teams followed. The passionate girls not only lighted up the field, but also the futsal teams.

 

 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, Mr. Ma Zizhong welcomed all friends from home and abroad. He said 2017 Asian-Pacific University Futsal & Cheerleading Championship is the first international championship hosted by Lingwu. It is also a historical moment of Lingwu sports development. The Organizing Committee promised to provide the best and most effective and considerate service to all delegations. Mr. Jargalsaikhan congratulated on the grand opening and expressed his appreciation to the Federation of University Sports of China (FUSC), Sports Bureau of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Education Department of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and Lingwu Municipal Government for the wonderful organization, on behalf of AUSF. He pointed out that this championship was the first joint programme between AUSF and the Oceania University Sports Federation, which was an innovative act to combine futsal and cheerleading to make the competition more appealing. At last, he wished all teams performing the best and the Championship a great success!

 

After the Opening Ceremony, a 15-minutes performance of traditional Chinese dances and drums were presented to all delegations. The participating teams were very excited about the new-style march-in and were entertained by the wonderful dances.
