To kick off the evening, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup from NWC’s Men’s Soccer team athletes.

Additionally, the event will feature past World Cup highlight videos, a mock bracket competition and food samples from around the globe.

International student athletes will also describe the role of soccer in their culture, as well as World Cup traditions and celebrations in countries such as Spain, Cameroon, Uruguay and many more.
