Friends of The Water Well Project joined in on "One World Cup" hosted by the Victoria Police Soccer Club at Knox Regional Football Centre during Harmony Week.
As one of twenty four teams from different backgrounds, different cultures and different faiths, we played against and then with other teams to celebrate inclusivity and community. The mix of ethnicities included players from the Congo, ECCV (Ethnic Community Council of Victoria mixed team), Assyrian/Chaldean - Soraya Youth United, Victorian Karen Community, Swinburne TAFE mixed migrant team, Three Seas Ararat (Indigenous), Sudanese, Karen Community Nhill, VPSC, AFP, Socceroos, Croatia, Zambians, Uighur and Chinese, just to name a few!
We had an amazing time, and hope to see you all again next year!
Well done to Victoria Police for putting on this fantastic event which was supported by the Australian Intercultural Society, Football Fives, the Football Federation of Victoria and Adidas Australia; and proudly sponsored by NAB, VHRC, VMC and AUSCO.
