Coming September 8 – November 4, 2023

CWS Lancaster and Lancaster Rec are proud to present this new opportunity to bring refugees and immigrants together in a World-Cup style soccer tournament kicking off Lancaster’s Welcome Week in September 2023.

Over the course of the 8-week series, Lancaster residents from around the world will join together in community building, leadership development, and trauma support — all through soccer. As a global sport, soccer allows players to get to know new neighbors, hone their leadership skills, and find joy and peace in a new home.
