SMU’s Female Students Football team conducted a friendly football match with Athlete In Action, a Female Students Football team from Canada, on June 3, 2016. SMU’s President Wondwosen Tamirat (Assoc. professor) and Business and Administration’s Vice President Ato Desalegn Berie, attended the match. Leading the SMU’s Female Students Football team was Ato Abebe Zenebe, President of the team, while the guest team was represented by its coach, Kate Kristoffel. Following the match, a refreshment program was arranged for all team members (Both Male and Female Football teams of the guest team and SMU’s team), which was a great opportunity to share experiences and for the guest team to enjoy traditional Ethiopian food and dancing. A City Tour was also arranged for the guest team. The news of the match was transmitted through local media in Addis, including Bisrat, FM 101, Sheger 102.1, FM 96.3 and other FM Radios. We believe that the events played a pivotal role in building ties and sense of friendship between the two teams.  We also believe that the guest team had enjoyed the events and will take away memory of SMU and the city with them. The events, were also instrumental in further building SMU’s image locally and internationally.
