Football for Refugees 2017 Summer Festival

In June 2017, Football For Refugees returned to Lesvos to host our 2017 Summer Festival at Spanos Mini Football Club, Mytilini-Paralia.  In just 8 days, over 200 children, 21 teams, in 4 separate age groups, played over 43 matches!

The Summer Festival offered all refugee children in Lesvos the chance to play football in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination.

The tournament consisted of a series of round robin group matches followed by knock-out rounds with a day of finals on 9 June.

We thank all our partners on the island for their time and effort in bringing this unique festival of football to a reality.
