Why Lewis Moody loves the greatest youth rugby tournament in the world

There should be nothing about rugby that impressed Lewis Moody. The English international and Lion has been in all the rugby world's fields, in all the world's changing rooms in many of the great moments of the game and, like the warrior he was and is, he is not a man to be impressed.

Footgolf helps Bimbo Portugal achieving its goals

Bimbo Portugal had very specific goals and they knew they could count on us to reach them. The company was looking for a corporate sports activity to increase their professional efficiency, and Move Sports had an undeniable proposal.   Bimbo’s employees arrived in Óbidos, early in the morning, where they first had intense work sessions. The participants were very curious about what we had organised for them. After lunch, when the time had come, and without any delays, they found out that they were going to play a Footgolf tournament. At first, they were surprised about it, but quickly the willingness to play became dominant. The teams gathered people from different departments and after getting to know the basics of this new sport, they have started this journey with great motivation. In fact, footgolf is a very simple sport with basic rules. It follows the principles and objectives of golf but is played with the feet, with a size 5 ball and with holes adapted to it. The tournament was a success and the competitiveness lasted until the last kick. Late in the afternoon, we delivered the awards while a New Orleans old hits band was playing. There was a great joy and enthusiasm in the group. We have all went home happy. Bimbo Portugal had a good work day. We have shown the value of corporate sports events.

The magical moment of the U18 Lekstorps IF girls

There, deep down in your heart, what any football fan wants to see in a match is that magic and unforgettable moment. This desire applies to both the Champions League final and to a youth tournament like the Lisbon Football Youth Cup, which we organize in Lisbon, because every football lover knows that magic can appear from both a professional and a 17-year-old girl. It is obvious that the effort is always welcome, that the goal is always celebrated, and that discipline and technical abilities are always recognized by any true supporter. But the magic moment changes everything.

THE BRISBANE OUTSIDERS RUGBY PLAYERS WANT TO COME BACK

We were going to meet the Outsiders, a group of rugby veterans from Brisbane, with an average age of 50, and we were worried about it. We were worried because the information we got, was that this tour was the Outsiders’ last trip to play rugby outside of Australia. So, that was a big deal. We wanted them to have their last tour as extraordinary as the value and friendliness of the group, who are legendary all over the world. The first match they played was in Estádio Universitário de Lisboa (University Stadium of Lisbon), against the Lawbsters, the Portuguese national team. For the second match, we chose to take them to Évora, a World Heritage Site. We knew we had to find the right teams for the Outsiders, meaning that the teams had to have quality players, but at the same time, players within the same age group.

IN LISBON, EVEN A DUTCH PLAYER SMILES

If you are a sports insider, you know that if you want a serious professional, you should hire a Dutch player. They are 100 percent focused, always keen on target. Don’t forget about Gullit. So, when a few days ago, we hosted the girls from HBS Craeyenhout, a field hockey team from The Hague, we were a bit concerned. These girls, playing in their national league, came here to work hard. And indeed, they had the no fuss, no-frills approach. Scheduled time was sharp to the minute, training sessions were hard, even for 20-year old girls. And, of course, the game was a serious affair. They beat our national team for 7–0. But, the following day, we took them to walk for a while in the old streets of Lisbon to experience our city life. We are nice people, and the girls started to relax, and to smile a lot. Then we took them on a Sit way tour – a tour on a Segway’s vehicle with adapted seats. The day was sunny, people were waving in a friendly way. The girls were happy, some of them couldn’t even stop laughing. Mission accomplished.
