The ‘Kili Bowl’ will involve university student athletes from Drake University in Iowa, a Pioneer Conference member, and the CONADEIP Mexico League. I will be traveling as a liaison for the US Center for Citizen Diplomacy and engaging in community outreach, cultural events, and helping during the community service activities. This trip is a monumental program for both Drake, CONADEIP, and the youth in Tanzania as it will bring together three different cultures under a common interest.

Col. (retired) Iddi Kipingu, Chairman of the Tanzanian National Sports Council in the capital city of Dar es Salaam noted, “the Kili Bowl will be a very special chance for our country to be first among African nations to introduce this dynamic sport, while allowing our children the opportunity to play a game new to them. We welcome Global Football, as well as the Drake and CONADEIP Mexico teams.”
