Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival set to kick goals again!
Sunday 15th November 2020
World Cup fever is again set to take over Naracoorte for the second successive Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival on Sunday 15th November.
The carnival will use sport to celebrate a diverse and harmonious Australia by bringing together people from different cultural backgrounds from the Limestone Coast and possibly further afield in South Australia.
The carnival will communicate the message of shared value – respect, equality and freedom.
“The purpose of the Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival is to use a shared interest in the ‘World Game’ of soccer to unite different cultural backgrounds while forging community connections with sporting clubs, community leaders, services, council and other organisations,” Naracoorte Lucindale Mayor Erika Vickery OAM said.
The carnival is a one-day event being held at the Naracoorte and District Sports Centre with 7-aside, ½ field round robin soccer competitions for junior, women’s and men’s teams as well as free MiniRoos come-and-try clinics for 4-10 year olds led by Football SA coaches.
Football SA will also promote its Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) program which is designed to eliminate the unique barriers that CALD communities (particularly women and girls) experience when participating in physical activity.
Event partners for this year’s Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival are Naracoorte Lucindale Council, Naracoorte United Soccer Club, the Australian Migrant Resource Centre, the Limestone Coast Multicultural Network and Teys Australia.
Naracoorte United Soccer Club president Jon Thurlow said: “The club is excited about hosting the carnival for the second successive year. It’s such a great opportunity for children and families to come together, get active and celebrate multiculturalism through sport.”
