Sport knows no origin, no skin colour or religion. Sport is stronger than war or terror. Being active together, all that counts is the present, not past or future. Sport teaches fairplay and respect – even off the field. Sport is happiness.
This is the message and the recipe for success of a soccer team from Munich. "Sports United Munich" was foundeed three and a half years ago, the players come from countries like Afghanistan, Iran, Irak and Eritrea.
Now the team is responsible for a novelty in Bavaria: Under the roof of sports club ESV Neuaubing the players are competing in the regular league of the Bavarian Soccer Association – as the very first team of refugees in the state.
We – the players and ESV Neuaubing – want to set an example, also for other clubs: sport means integration and is extremely rewarding. For all sides! That's why ESV Neuaubing opens up all its devisions for refugees. We invite all new fellow citizens to become members of our great community.
The soccer devision alone has 40 new members, all refugees. We can't and don't want to expect from them to pay the membership fee (170 Euro annually, reduced 120 Euro).
That's why we kindly ask for your support through this platform. Thank you!
