Local Afghan-led grassroots community organisation, Glasgow Afghan United, will host a football tournament that joins local communities, ethnic minority communities and refugee communities as a means of promoting diversity, promoting the richness that people from many backgrounds bring to Scotland. The aim is to stimulate helpful conversations between newly arrived groups and those from local and established communities. It is a one-day event attended by over 200 people. There will be 16 teams of 7 aside; each team will register up to 10 players. Refreshment will be provided to all participants and the winning teams will be awarded a trophy and 2 of the top teams will be awarded medals.
