Student Associations hosted a World C Feb. 22 at the BYU-Idaho Center gym.
The World C started at noon and ended at 4 p.m.
“I helped signing for teams and scheduling,” said Bethany Pulido, a junior studying wedding planning and the Filipino Association president.
Pulido said they used flyers to advertise for the event. She was named the Filipino Association president this semester.
“I haven’t been playing in the world c before, but I have been on Rec soccer teams,” Pulido said.
Pulido said she was a little bit surprised at how many students at BYU-I are interested in soccer.
She said she is happy with the turnout because she was worried about how many people would show for the event.
“They are fifteen-minute games in two different courts,” Pulido said. “There are six teams in both courts, and they will take out the best two teams from each court to go into the semi-finals.”
Pulido said there is no halftime in the games.
“I came and there was no one signed for the African Association so I decided to sign for them,” said Derek Sanders, a freshman studying international relations.
Sanders said he played soccer in high school.
“You don’t need to be part of the association, or to play soccer well,” Sanders said. “You just go play and have fun.”
Pulido said soccer is a great way to meet people, and that the association is great. She said students should come and join the association to make friends.
At the end, the African Association met the Brazilian Association in finals.
The African Association won the final 3-1.
