On Monday, 27 June 2022, the penultimate event of the Natolin Graduation Week took place – the annual staff-student football tournament, occurring at the campus football pitch of the College of Europe in Natolin.
The event saw four teams face off in a tournament composed jointly of staff and student players, in a 7-against-7 format. The teams were named for their captains – comprising Team A (for Adam), Team S (for Stanisław), Team N (for Nino) and Team Y (for Yann).
On a sweltering day at the campus, the four teams did battle over the course of several hours, as Team Y finally ran out triumphant and claimed the Natolin Football Cup. The victors – as well as the second- and third-ranked teams – were issued their medals by the Rector of the College of Europe, Mme Federica MOGHERINI, alongside the Vice-Rector, Mme Ewa OŚNIECKA-TAMECKA.
The event was organised by the Student Affairs and Professional Development Office, in tandem with the student sports society, the Natolin Sports Committee. The spectacle saw the attendance of many curious spectators (also staff and students), and attendees were treated to refreshments and snacks throughout (courtesy of the Natolin Restaurant).
