Fair Play gives our local young people the chance to engage with the broader community outside of their usual environment. The Tournament gives the young people the opportunity to showcase their talents and strengthens their belonging. It also provide a platform for local police to assist these young people in participating in a sport that is their passion around a well run and positive environment.- Christopher McGeachan, Victoria Police Officer
The Rotary Club of Collingwood has been sponsoring HFCA since 2010, gradually increasing our commitment as our understanding of the fantastic work it does for disadvantaged young people in Cambodia. Lovely, friendly place that it is Cambodia, remains a very poor nation and to be disadvantaged there is to know the real meaning of “disadvantage”. HFCA gives young boys and girls a focus and helps them progress in life, assisting them not just with football, but with their education and careers.- Collingwood Rotary President Bruce Shaw
Here in Australia, through the annual Fair Play competition HFCA brings that work to Melbourne providing a friendly competition which brings together young people from a wide variety of backgrounds with teams ranging from Ivanhoe Grammar to teams assembled from the high rise housing estates. Collingwood Rotary is proud to fulfil the objectives of Rotary International by supporting this fantastic international organisation.- Bruce continued
