FIFA Women’s World Cup Ticket Winner
To celebrate the FIFA Women’s World Cup being played in Australia (and Melbourne for that matter) for the first time, the College ran several competitions for students to help raise the profile of women’s sport and excitement levels around the tournament. One of the competitions was the chance for a student to win 4 tickets to a World Cup game. On 2 August, Isha Dutt of Year 11 went to watch Brazil take on Jamaica at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium, taking some family members and her friend and fellow Year 11 student Mia. Here is a short account from Isha:
‘I was lucky enough to win the FIFA tickets. The Brazil vs Jamaica game was amazing to watch. The crowd and the atmosphere overall was very enjoyable and it was a really lovely experience’.
We are glad you enjoyed the experience Isha. It will no doubt be a fond memory to cherish in the future.
