Supporter Of The Month: January 2017.

Many thanks must go to Theo Adamou who recently contacted Their Beautiful Game to offer his support. Theo, who lives in Holland, raises money for a charity of his own choosing each year by creating and selling a CD. Previously, he has raised money for Orange Sky Laundry and WEAVE, and in December 2016 reached out to us to say that he’d like to support our football projects across the globe. Over $2500 has been raised! Thanks for your thoughtfulness, time and generosity in this initiative Theo!

Their Beautiful Game @ The National Indigenous Football Championships

It was a great privilege for us to be a part of the first ever National Indigenous Football Championships, and support Aboriginal Footballers from communities across Australia. Their Beautiful Game donated boots, team strips, goalkeeper gloves and shin pads to Men’s, Women’s, Boys and Girl’s teams, ensuring they had everything they needed to take part in what will hopefully be the first of many tournaments, and an important part of Australian football history!

Their Beautiful Game Training Sessions.

From time to time, Their Beautiful Game arranges access to coaching for the footballers we support, and we were lucky this week to secure the services of elite coach Lee Jones of Joner1on1 Football Coaching. Lee works with a number of A-League and W-League players, and put Isaac, a young refugee from Sierra Leone living in Sydney, through his paces in an hour long session. Drills focussed on foot speed, awareness and finishing that would help Isaac develop in his preferred position of striker. Thanks to Lee for all his advice and guidance!16

Their Beautiful Game At Home.

As well as working in developing countries, Their Beautiful Game also supports football clubs within our own community here in Sydney that require access to the resources they need to play football. We have several projects for recently arrived refugees and Indigenous groups which provide boots, balls, team strips and training equipment.

We were very happy to be invited to attend a training session with The Karen Youth Football Club in Yenora, Western Sydney. The Burmese players who make up the various teams at the club are from the Tham-Hin refugee camp on the Thai-Burma border, where they have spent most of their lives seeking asylum before recently arriving in Australia. Boots and balls donated here in Sydney were passed on to the Karen Youth men’s and women’s teams for them to use.
