Looking for a soccer team to play friendly event (Kyiv)
I'm trying to find a soccer team to play a series of friendly games with a visiting squad if anybody has suggestions!
Our organization, the Howe International Friendship League, uses the power of sport to connect otherwise distant communities. At our typical events, we bring a team of amateur athletes to a host destination for a series of games and practices with local players. The belief is that through a shared passion (sport), we can forge genuine connections with local communities and learn about their culture, beliefs and way of life. When not on the field, our participants are taken around to see tourist sights as well as participate in joint social/cultural activities with the local players.
Based on the recommendations of our players, we are hoping to organize an event this August in the Chernobyl region of Ukraine. While we will visit Pripyat to learn about the history, we want this event to focus more on the people that call the region home. With global coverage consistently focusing on the events of Protected content , we strongly feel that it is important to remind people that the region remains home to diverse communities with much to offer. With that in mind, we are looking to engage a host team that would be interested in participating in this meaningful exchange. While some of our past host teams have been elite professional squads, we are primarily concerned about the ability to establish genuine cross-cultural engagement and learning opportunities.
Does anybody have any suggestions for teams or individuals we can reach out to?
