The fourth successive Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival was held in Naracoorte on Saturday 5th November 2022.
The carnival uses sport to celebrate a diverse and harmonious Australia by bringing together people from different cultural backgrounds from the Limestone Coast and often further afield.
The carnival communicates a message of shared values – respect, equality and freedom.
The Australian Migrant Resource Centre and Naracoorte United Soccer Club are coordinating the event this year, with support from a number of other partners including Naracoorte Lucindale Council, the Limestone Coast Multicultural Network, STTARS (Survivors of Torture and Trauma Assistance and Rehabilitation Service), Teys Australia, Football South Australia, Ottoson Partners Real Estate, MiniJumbuk and Naracoorte Freight Centre.
Federal Government funding has also been received for this year’s event from Sport Australia’s Regional Sport Events Fund.
The one-day event will be held at the Naracoorte and District Sports Centre with 7-aside, 1/2 field round robin soccer competitions for men’s, women’s, U13 boys and U13 girls teams as well as a free MiniRoos come-and-try clinic for younger soccer enthusiasts led by Football SA coaches.
