China Innovation Hub hosts UK-China Going Global Forum

The China Innovation Hub at Bournemouth University hosted a UK-China Going Global Forum, part of an exciting global 3-month ‘British Council China-UK Football Study Programme’ in partnership with AFC Bournemouth. The programme is an initiative under the framework of UK-China High-Level People-to-People Dialogue. It is designed to enable Chinese coaches to learn from the UK’s advanced football theory and management experiences. BU had the pleasure to welcome 60 Chinese coaches as part of the programme.

Dr Sonal Minocha, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Global Engagement) at BU welcomed guests to the Forum. Dr Minocha highlighted that:

“BU is one of the three UK universities that were chosen to implement this great initiative to help Chinese campus football go global, and further develop strategic collaborations of campus football between the UK and China.”


Jeff Mostyn, AFC Bournemouth Chairman, highlighted that China is a country with immense opportunities and that he very much looks forward to future collaborations that will enable the UK and China to strengthen their links.
