Changes to the number of teams participating the WURIT 2019

 

We're now closing in to the beginning of the tournament, with just over 2 months until the start! 

However we unfortunately have to announce that the number of teams have decreased by one, with China Univeristy of Agriculture not being able to participate. 

We hope that sometime in future tournaments we will be able to meet them and face them on the pitch!
