The MATCH begins, once again, for the 2019 – 2020 season and the Greek Forum of Refugees’ football team is getting ready for the upcoming challenges. Ready to compete, honoring the values of mutual respect, ready to play the game, ready to play in every MATCH.
Coach Kennedy is setting his plans for the team, waiting to test the “new entries” and the “freshmen”. Evaluating their progress and working hard with them, exploring their potential, but most important, enjoying the game.
Greek Forum of Refugees’ football team has been created through the MATCH project in Greece, a project which aimed to provide social inclusion opportunities through sports. Now this team has created big standards for itself and is taking part for a second season in the row, in a Greek football league (http://anexartito.com/).
Last season we joined the league of anexartito.com starting from the second round of the competition and scoring an amazing record of 10 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats, in 14 matches and with 42 – 16 goals.
Our team is open to everyone interested in playing football, regardless the national or cultural background. After two years of training, playing and competing together, we have came to the conclusion that everything is possible, as long as we have a football and a pitch and the guidance of our coach, our “General”, Kennedy.
We are getting ready, so if you are interested in taking part, join us.
