Two community football tournaments have concluded in recent weeks with the Ramadan Cup and Inala Community Cup being held under the first year of the Welcoming Tournaments banner.
The Ramadan Cup was held over four weekends at the Spanish Centre in Acacia Ridge during May and early June.
In the second year of the event, 10 teams competed in a round robin style competition, followed by knockout games to determine the tournament winner.
The Australian Federal Police and the Queensland Police Service were strong supporters of the event, while members of the Somali Community organised and officiated the Ramadan Cup tournament.
This year’s Ramadan Cup winners were SYL Inala, who won the final 2 – 0 over Sacidad from Acacia Ridge, with all games of the tournament well attended and played in the right spirit.
On Saturday, June 6, the third annual Inala Community Cup was held at CJ Greenfield Park.
This community event was held as part of the Queensland Day celebrations and involved a broad range of family fun activities including orienteering, kickball, volleyball and football.
16 teams entered the football competition and were split into four pools, with 37FC crowned winners of the Champion’s Trophy after defeating Liberia in a penalty shootout.
Under the Radar FC defeated Richlands FC in the Challenger’s Trophy Final.
The Inala Community Cup was supported by the Queensland State Government, Welcoming Australia, Brisbane City Council, Inala Community House, Acacia Ridge YMCA and Football Queensland.
