Participating CONIFA team Sapmi, visited a local school in Artsakh today, to help the children studying there take their minds off their end-of-year exams.
The entire squad visited School Number 2 in Artsakh, where players, coaches and staff took time to speak to youngsters who all had their exam results in their hands. The players posed for photos with the school children, who were thrilled at the visit of an international football team to their school for the first time ever.
After a group photo, the players then visited the kindergarten year groups at the school, who greeted the players with traditional Artsakhian songs. Sapmi then performed one of their own traditional chants for the children before more photographs with the teachers.
In true CONIFA spirit, Sapmi also presented the school principal with a pennant to be put on display in the school as a reminder of the tournament and the visit from the Sapmi squad.
Sapmi are in action later today, as they face Padania in a placement game. Kick-off is at 6pm in Martakert. Watch all the action on mycujoo.tv
