AIMZ Champions League, Spring 2016
We Are The Champions
Competing against teams from some of the top international schools in Egypt, our recently established NIS American boys football team has pulled off the impossible. They are the champions, my friends!
Nothing can match the pride we felt when the NIS Eagles were announced as the winners of the AIMZ Champions League Cup held in Gouna this month. The final match was against the previous title holders, Manor House American, a remarkable team that our Eagles managed to resoundingly defeat.
On their quest to the final, our team won matches against very tough teams from American-Cairo College, Deutsche Evangelische Oberschule Kairo and Misr Language Schools. With their outstanding skills and exceptional sportsmanship, they won the respect of the officials and the fans in El Gouna.
The tournament cup was not the only trophy our team managed to bring home. They also brought back the Best Player Trophy which was awarded to Mohamed Hathoot, and the Best Junior Player Trophy which was awarded to Yahya Abu El Seoud.
The trophies were presented in a ceremony that was attended by the former Minister of Sports & Egyptian football icon, Taher Abu Zeid, and Egyptian Football League board member, Sahar El Hawary.
We are extremely proud of our NIS eagles and can’t wait for their next accomplishment. GO EAGLES!
AIMZ Champions League, Winter 2016
The NIS Eagles returned from El -Gouna AIMZ Champions League after a remarkable first appearance. Not only did they manage to defeat the defending champions, Hayah International Academy, in the first round; they won the respect of everyone in the tournament for their outstanding discipline and organization. Our team was honored for its sportsmanship and discipline with the Fair Play Trophy. While we are disappointed that they lost 1-0 to MES in the quarter final, we are extremely proud of these talented and well-disciplined young men and look forward to their future victories.
