Ottawa’s Community Cup

 

Each year a wonderful event takes place in our beautiful city called the Community Cup.

This recreational co-ed soccer tournament is a non-profit, multicultural initiative that integrates volunteerism and sport. Founded in 2005 and hosted by the Catholic Centre for Immigrants, this volunteer driven event is a fun and engaging way to help newcomers and non-newcomers connect in a barrier-free way that welcomes communities and celebrates diversity. The Community Cup, now an annual festival,  features soccer, multicultural dance and music, international cuisine, a Canadian citizenship ceremony, children’s events, and more.

Stony Monday Riot has decided to enter a team this year, not only to show off our incredible soccer skills, but also to join the celebrations of diversity and multiculturalism in our city. We strongly believe in the power of the beautiful game to bring people from all walks of life together. The Ottawa Fury FC will be there, but don’t worry, the players are not competing, however, they will host a Soccer Skills Challenge. There will also be an opportunity to meet and interact with the Fury players.

If you are interested in joining our team please email jontheiseden@gmail.com or get in touch with any other SMR member. Don’t worry about skill level, this is a just for fun, recreational tournament that is non-competitive in nature. All we require is that you show up on the date (on time) and that you are willing to have a good time and enjoy playing the game.
