World Refugee Day Soccer Tournament.

ChangeMakers Resettlement Forum, Capital Football, The Wellington Phoenix  and Better Football, hosted a special World Refugee Day Football Tournament between refugee background communities and Host community on 23rd  June at ASB Sports Centre to celebrate and acknowledge diversity. 

There were eight teams from different nationalities, included players from Columbia, Eritrea, Syria, Afghanistan and Iran.  The final match was played between the “Ethiolions” from Ethiopia and the Assyrians “Assyria”. The “Ethiolions” were able to take the ball in their court and won the tournament.
