Description:
Tournament 9 am

Dinner and celebration 5 pm -7:30 pm

World Refugee Day is celebrated every year on June 20th. This event honors the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. The Missoula community has stepped up to welcome more than 45 families and has made Missoula a welcoming place where refugees can integrate and thrive. Soft Landing Missoula is excited to celebrate the addition of these families to our community with a soccer tournament and community party.

Through the Second Annual World Refugee Day Cup, of course! This year's Soccer Tournament will be held on June 16, 2018 at the new Parks and Recreation soccer fields at Fort Missoula. A round-robin set up of 7 v. 7 teams will guarantee that each team plays at least 2 games. The World Cup Match of the final two teams will be held in the late afternoon, followed immediately by the community celebration. There will be food, drinks, kids activities and music into the evening.

Registration is available through Parks and Rec.

Last year, more than 250 people from the Missoula area joined together with newly arrived refugee families to play in or attend this amazing community-building event. We had a day full of soccer, laughs, music and food - and can't wait to do it again this year!
