The REACH Rumble 2019 is REACH’s inaugural football competition that aims to bring together REACH’s students, sponsors, donors, business partners, and the wider Hanoian community on the football pitch.
This was a great opportunity for our donors to meet the students they support, REACH’s business partners to meet their future employees, and students to get out there and show everyone they're not just well trained, highly skilled workers but also really great football players.
The 16 teams included 192 players from British University Vietnam staff; RMIT & Prospective Students; Australia Embassy’s staff; Alfresco's; Friends of British International School Hanoi; REACH All Stars; Ba dinh bats; Hilton Hanoi Opera & Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi; RMIT University Vietnam staff; Revina; British University Vietnam Students; US Embassy in Hanoi; British International School Hanoi Kham Lam FC; InterContinental Hanoi Landmark 72; InterContinental Hanoi Westlake.
The fierce tournament raised more than VND 100 million (USD 4.300) to go toward vocational training, career advice and job placement services for disadvantaged Vietnamese youth at REACH.
