As explained by Principal Jia Yush Yen, the NTUST football team is formed of undergraduates and postgraduate students who do not come from the student-athlete pathway. Fueled by their passion for football, many foreign students joined the team and trained tirelessly over many years among the local students to strike the new record for the team. The principal considers the success of NTUST football team today an uneasy feat.

Zkey, a PhD student from Ethiopia studying information management at NTUST, has been on the team for six years. Zkey believes that the team has a strong unity and a diverse identity from which he could learn the perks of different styles of football played by other players.

Recalling his journey from a bench player to the team captain, Sze Chun Lau from Hong Kong cherishes the impressive goals he and his teammates have worked hard to achieve. Lau also feels that the team’s exceptional accomplishment this year makes a great part of his overseas experience.

The NTUST football team has been founded for 15 years. Prior to instructor Chia-Hui Chen’s addition as the team’s coach, athletics director Kuei-Pin Chien had taken up the role when the team first participated in the 11-man national university football league below division 2 until the team advanced into division 2 for the 2017-2018 semester.
