At 21:00 on June 20, the Yiwu Sino-foreign Folk "World Cup" was officially started in Binwang Football Park in downtown Yiwu. That day, the group game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia had entered its final leg.
That evening, Yiwu local "So So Team" played against Turkish Foreign Merchant Team on an eight-a-side football field. The field was slippery because it was raining that evening, but the players of both teams still played fiercely. "So So Team" finally defeated Turkish Foreign Merchant Team by 4:3 depending on excellent attack.
According to the introduction of Zheng Zhehao, organizer of the event, those Chinese and foreign folk football teams were basically made up of businessmen engaged in foreign trade, foreign merchants, and office workers. It was of particular significance to organize the Sino-foreign Folk "World Cup" during the period of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. Next, the local team was going to play against Iraq Team, Columbia Team, and Yemen Team. They didn't only express their respect to the World Cup this year but also created a strong atmosphere for Yiwu to build itself into a football city in their own way.
