The MATCH never ends. Join the team!
MATCH Project in Greece was an opportunity to seek social inclusion through sports.
The project, funded by Erasmus + , made us believe that neither language nor nationality could be a barrier to social inclusion.
Our partners and friends from CESIE, have been, always, guiding us to perform the necessities of this idea as better as we could.
The last 2,5 years the Greek Forum of Refugees has managed to form a football team which is open to everyone, regardless the nationality. More than 60 people with refugee or migrant background, trained or even played football matches with the team.
Young dreamers from Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Congo, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Eritrea, Burundi and so many others, had the chance to interact, play football and chase their goals. But most important, they had the opportunity to enjoy themselves and seek inclusion through sports.
All these years, Coach Kennedy, the “General” of the Greek Forum of Refugees’ team, has been training and inspiring young guys to follow their dreams. He is always a role model for the young dreamers willing to listen. During all this time, he contributed to establish some important values and principles.
MATCH never ends and now we are ready for the next steps.
Join our team, follow your dreams.
