Draw in Wellington was Spectacular...

The organizational skills of FIFA are unparalleled. When it comes to the organization of events, no one does it better. The Draw for the Women's U-17 World Cup New Zealand 2008, held tonight in Wellington was no different. Impeccable organization and a hosting and local organizing committee who were up to the task and added those special touches to make the event uniquely Kiwi.

The videos here are not about the draw but about the elements around it. My welcome speech, music to entertain us, dance to fascinate us, a press conference to inform us and a tradition Maori challenge as they led us to the official banquet. Enjoy them. They were fun.

The actual draw conducted by Jim Brown and Tatiana Haenni was perfectly explained and well executed. Congratulations to all who made this possible.
