World Cup fever is set to take over Naracoorte for The Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival Saturday 9th of November.
The carnival will use sport to celebrate a diverse and harmonious Australia by bringing together newly arrived migrants and first and second-generation migrants from different cultural backgrounds from the communities of Limestone Coast (SA), Murray and Mallee (SA), Barwon-West (VIC) and Grampians (VIC). The carnival will communicate the message of shared value – respect, equality and freedom.
The purpose of the Limestone Coast Multicultural Soccer Carnival is to use a shared interest in the ‘World Game’ – soccer, to unite newly arrived migrants and first and second-generation migrants from different cultural backgrounds while forging community connections with sporting clubs, community leaders, services, council and other organisations.
