Romanian and foreign diplomats will compete in several sport events, such as soccer, basketball, badminton, tennis, table tennis, chess, cycling and golf in the 28 May – 5 June MAE Cup, the 14th such competition of the Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE).

In a release to Agerpres on Friday, the MAE mentions that the event will open with a bicycle tour starting 9.00 Saturady, on a route that ends at the Diplomatic Club.

Also on Saturday, the Diplomatic Club will host a friendly soccer match between the teams of the MAE and of the French embassy in Bucharest.
