Goal! Rencontres sans Frontières Tourney
This is the third year in a row that Serve the City took part in the Rencontres sans Frontières football tournament. Serve the City registered two teams composed of volunteers and residents of Foyer Saint Antoine on Sunday, June 12th. The teams played six games under the sun in a nice and cheerful atmosphere!
The tournament was organized by the Ville de Luxembourg and it gathered 41 teams with members from at least two nationalities. Our teams beat all counts with people from Cameroon, Luxembourg, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Malta! The sidelines were filled with tents providing food from all over the world: Brazil, Montenegro, Thailand, Portugal, Italy, etc., to make sure players and spectators had enough energy.
Our team did not qualify despite several victories and draws, but what matters the most is that we all had a great time, enjoyed the sun and the residents were happy to have something different to do on the weekend.
The tournament is organized every year in June, so make sure you’re around for the 2017 edition as we will be aiming for qualifications!
