GAME OF FOOTBALL OUTSIDE LHASA
 
A game of football between 'Lhasa United' and the Mission Marmots in progress. The ground was two mile beyond the Norbulingka in a sandy area surrounded by thorn thickets.

Spencer Chapman remarks that 'Playing at 12,000 feet above sea-level is not so much of an ordeal as one would imagine, though sometimes one would rush down the field and find ones quite unable to breathe. Then it was necessary to lie down for a few moments in the middle of hte field until one's breath returned.' The match was apparently a ' good clean game'

 GCMGC FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

 In 1981, the first club level tournament was organized in loving memory of the late mother of His Holiness (14th) the Dalai Lama - the Gyalyum Chemo Memorial Gold Cup (GCMGC). A special committee was formed to start the tournament. Over the years various bodies took charge of organizing the GCMGC football tournament. Today it is the most prestigious tournament in the Tibetan community.

TNSA came into the picture of organizing the GCMGC in 2003. Today it is fully responsible for organizing this tournament every year. There are more than twenty registered football clubs under TNSA. This is one tournament that involves maximum Tibetan youth and through this tournament, the TNSA selects its national team for participation in tournaments around the world. We are in the process of strengthening this mentoring and selection process- both at the school and club levels
