SEAMAAC Wins Inaugural P3 World Cup Championship
In the first ever Mini-World Cup Philadelphia Plays for Peace (P3 Tournament) SEAMAAC’s Team Asia surprised the tournament in winning the championship by winning all tournament matches during round-robin, semifinal and championship stages. On the road to winning the Championship, SEAMAAC’s Team Asia, prevailed over a talent-laden field including North America, Middle East, Latin America and Africa. SEAMAAC’s team was represented by a mixture of SEAMAAC staff, UPenn Students and Community Members: Thoai Nguyen, Carlos Alvarez, Matt Ostrup, Eric Abhold, Lucas Bonafede, Caitlin Collins, Nicole Yarbrough, Varun Arte, Paresh Sovani, Mike Bak, Nguyen Ho, Levi Kanu, Kevin Gardner, Jose Bartroli, Miguel Reynoso and Miguel Silva.
Philadelphia Plays for Peace (P3 Tournament), was played on Sunday, September 22nd simultaneously with “matches for peace” that was played around the world on the same weekend. The P3 Tournament was part of larger celebration in Philadelphia and around the world for United Nations International Peace Day. SEAMAAC was proud to have the opportunity to participate in International Peace Day and to present the “Beautiful Game” to our friends and families. Our team was supported by over a dozen of Board, staff and interns who came to cheer us on.
We look forward to participating again in the next Mini-Word Cup in 2014 and hope that other SEAMAAC supporters can help to spread the word and build momentum for next year’s tournament.
