10th Football Against Racism Tournament Kicks Off On Saturday


              


For the 10th time amateur footballers from Poland and all over the world will compete in Wrocław's annual 'Football Against Racism' tournament. 

While almost all eyes will understandably be on the first matches of World Cup 2018 this weekend, at the same time an immeasurably smaller tournament will be held in Wrocław for a good cause.

The 10th edition of the Football Against Racism tournament on Saturday will feature players from the likes of Poland, Vietnam, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and many African nations to name just a few.

The tournament is being backed by The Wroclaw Center for Social Development and Śląsk Wrocław Football Club amongst others.

Football won't be the only attraction at the event either, as they'll be live music as well as workshops and sporting activities for kids. 

The epic tournament kicks off at 9am and should be finished 12 hours later. You can find more info on the tournament in the official invite below:
