FootCoop 2012 -seminar and the Friendship City Tournament aims to make our usual home ground a bit more international. Friendship City activity needs new forms of activity. FCF -tournament is a step towards it. Sport brings people together in our communities. The teams are important part of daily discussions and the match days unite us. For businesses sponsoring a team can be an important way of creating new customer relationships and nourishing the old ones, finding new connections, getting visibility and media exposure. The city of Oulu has 8 friendship cities, Boden and Alta being involved in 2012 tournament. Hopefully in February 2013 we'll see teams from Odessa (RUS), Leverkusen (GER), Halle (GER), Siofok (HUN), Bursa (TUR) or Archangelsk (RUS).
