The Annual Mini World Cup was enjoyed by 250 Jewish, Arabs, Israeli and Palestinian boys from the Peres Center’s Twinned Peace Sport Schools project. The 250 boys that won the preliminary rounds enjoyed a day-long activity – and the highlight of the year.
The boys were divided into 20 mixed teams which were represented by different countries. Clothed in uniforms baring their countries flag, the boys competed for the winning title. The day concluded with a match between the Peres Center's coach’s team and an Israeli Celebrity Team.

For the third year running, the Peres Center is very proud to have run the girl's Mini World Cup tournament. This thrilling event was attended by 260 enthusiastic and excited Jewish, Arabs, Israeli and Palestinian girls. The girls have all participated in at least a full year of the Twinned Peace Soccer Schools program, perfecting their skills on the field, and getting to know one another on a personal level. They were divided into 22 mixed teams, again represented by different countries.
The girls all had a fantastic time and provided great feedback to their coaches and to the Peres Center staff. They look forward to participating in another year of the Twinned Peace Soccer Schools project, and to attending the next Mini World Cup.
