UNHCR Ireland and Sport Against Racism Ireland (SARI) are delighted to be hosting the fourth Fair Play Football Cup as part of their celebrations for World Refugee Day 2013.
The 7-a-side tournament, which is free to enter, will feature teams drawn from refugee and community groups, Government agencies and members of the media, with players from a host of different countries competing in the men's and women's competitions.
In our work in multiple countries across the world, UNHCR has seen how sport can play a key role in helping to build understanding and respect among different communities. Enjoying sport together is a great way for people from different countries to get to know each other.
A love of soccer in particular unites people the world over and the Fair Play Football Cup is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the contribution of refugees to communities throughout Ireland and to learn more about refugees and the continued plight of millions of people worldwide, who have been forced to flee their homes and seek refuge and protection.
There'll be something for all the family, with football skills training, face painting, music, great food from across the world and much more.
