Fair Play 13

Fair Play returned to its spiritual home in Clifton Hill in Melbourne. Everyone had a superb day and there was some great football skills on show from the male and female players. We were so lucky to have some of Melbourne best and brightest DJ's entertaining us with the funky beats. Collingwood Rotary took care of the food and bar and once the sun came out everyone was loving the event knowing they were raising much needed funds for HFCA (Happy Football Cambodia Australia)

Fair Play 13 winners Fitzroy Soccer Lions

"It was great to be part of Fair Play again. Fair Play provided 40 young people living in Yarra Public Housing the opportunity to live out their passions and aspirations. It gives the participants the opportunity to meet and socialize with other people from outside their circles. The event is well run, safe and always encouraging and welcoming of the young people we have involved in the 4 x teams on the day. HFCA sponsors our teams to participate so we don’t have to find the funding. Great to be part of another very successful and enjoyable event." Christopher McGeachan, Victorian Police Officer

Our main referee Evan Robotis was very impressed with all the players attitude stating "I didnt have a single player cause a problem all day. All the players treating the refs and opposition players with total respect and we would be delighted to come back again. Its a great event.". Fair Play is a community event and we were so happy that everyone entered the right spirit of the day.
