Glasgow Afghan United and Scottish Unity Football League are celebrating Refugee Festival Scotland 2019 through football. Local communities, ethnic minority communities and refugee communities will come together to enjoy football. Organisers hope to encourage communities to use football as a means of promoting anti-discrimination; allowing people to mix and providing an opportunity for all to play football regardless of race, religion, nationality, age, sexual orientation or any other factors.
This tournament hopes to stimulate the integration of the local community with people from a refugee background. It is a one-day event. There will be 20 teams of 7 aside; each team will be allowed to register up to 10 players. To participate, teams must register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Abdul on 07758556477 by the end of May. Participation is free.
Refreshments will be provided to all participants. The winner teams will be awarded a trophy and the two top teams will be awarded medals.
