KATHMANDU, Feb 05: The PATA Nepal Student Chapter of Public Youth Campus has organized a futsal tournament at Nepa Futsal, Chaumati on Feb 4.

The tournament was an intra-college event featuring 6 teams from the BTTM (Bachelor in Travel and Tourism Management) department of Public Youth Campus (PYC). The event was organized to foster a positive environment within the PATA Student Chapter. Surendra Neupane, Chairman of the PYC Student Chapter, said that the event was an effort at promoting interest towards sport tourism in Nepal. The PYC Student Chapter is aiming to conduct a similar tournament every four months and eventually incorporate a inter-college format by involving all 8 Student Chapters of PATA Nepal.

"In Nepal many youths and millennials are interested in sports but due to some challenges sports hasn't been that professional," said Neupane, "Now our government is also decentralized where each state can develop sports tourism in its own way. Not only futsal, football, cricket and other professional sports but also adventure sports should also be introduced to make Nepal as a sports hub for the world."
