    This is Bhim Neupane from Hobart a community leader and a volunteer. Under the initiative of druk Sporting United Hobart we are organising the 3rd HOBART FRIENDSHIP CUP 2016 on 26th and 27th of March 2016. There are nine men’s teams and three women’s teams participating to compete for the title. It is multicultural competition as there are teams from Burmese, Afghani, Nepali Society and Bhutanese community.
    I would like to have the media coverage of our activities.
    So I am wondering whether this subject matter will be relevant to go into the media. I am happy to answer any query you have regarding the championship.
    Kind Regards
