Football uniting the nations

We have over 20 nations who come to the Dignity Centre in Nicosia and there is one thing that unites everyone. Well, all the men at least: football.

So we organise six aside tournaments every Tuesday and Friday evenings at a local all weather pitch. We provide clean strip for everyone, footballs, and cold water for hydration. We also have a whistle and red and yellow cards to try and maintain some order!

All players need to be members of the Centre and to register to play before coming to the pitch.  That ensures that everyone can play and we manage the numbers.

It takes a little way to get organised…but once the teams are settled, everyone has a great time. And there are the inevitable team photos:
