    Re: Launch friendship tournament

    I think "the Friendship Tournament" is possible as the name of a tournament between two or more clubs, cities, countries, etc.

    I suspect that this is a translation of what you call this in your language. I realised when I worked in other cultures that they often express ideas of friendship, collaboration, respect, etc in messages, cards, banners, names of special occasions and other such things in a way that most native speakers of English from North America, the UK and the Antipodes do not. This is why we sometimes express surprise or lack of understanding when we see such things.

    Don't worry. If you say such things in your language, then nobody is going to be concerned if you wish to express your thought in English. Most of us would not say/write 'Friendship Tournament', but it's fine for you to do so, in my opinion.
