The Bratwurstpokal is back!

This time it's a mixed tournament and the more inventive you are with your German, the more points you win!

Join us at one of Newcastle University's sports grounds in Longbenton, Newcastle for a thrilling day of sport and language supported by Student Ambassadors and staff from universities.

Each school is invited to bring along a Year 8, 7-a-side football squad. There must always be at least 2 girls, and 2 boys on the pitch for your team at any time. You may be able to bring more than one team, depending on availability.

For more information contact Nick.
