UPDATE (September 13, 2018 at 1.15pm CST): This event has been POSTPONED due to the potential arrival of Typhoon Mangkhut in Guangdong. Stay tuned for updates, as we will announce a new date in the coming days.

What do you get when you combine the high-octane rush of football (soccer for all you North Americans) with the wonderful world of robotics? The answer: you get an action-packed weekend of techy fun! 

We’ve teamed up with UBTECH, the official robot partner of Manchester City Football Club, to host our first-ever Urban Family Robo-Soccer Competition this month at the Marco Polo Hotel Shenzhen and we couldn’t be more excited!

Set to be held in Shenzhen on September 16, this event welcomes families to build their very own robot, which attendees will then put to the test in a friendly football match.

In addition to mechanical madness (aka robot building), families will also be able to enjoy a delectable buffet lunch prepared specially by the hotel’s outstanding culinary team.
