Students at Kaplan International English in the U.K. and Ireland will have the opportunity to represent their countries in the first ever Kaplan Cup, a soccer tournament organized in conjunction with Kick It Out, a campaign for equality and inclusion in the sport.
Hundreds of English students from more than 20 countries will play in the Kaplan Cup, and there will be both a men’s and a women’s tournament. The games will be played in Upton Park, inside a 35,000-seat stadium, and hundreds of spectators are expected to attend.
According to Martin Hofschroer, Kaplan’s content strategist, said: “We can’t wait to provide a really special evening for our students. Learning with Kaplan isn’t just about lessons in a classroom, it’s a life experience.”
The Kaplan Cup will be a wonderful opportunity to combine sports, education, and teamwork into a fun international competition. As Dean Watson, Grassroots Development Officer at Kick It Out, said, “This is a positive event that helps to show that football truly is for everyone.”
