The Friendship Cup 2017 - With cricket as a shared passion, everyone is a winner at the Friendship Cup SA

Hosted by the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA), the Friendship Cup continues to grow each year. The cricket friendly is a symbol of multiculturalism and some of the great healthy activities that South Australia has to offer.

The day got off to a tough start with a change of venue due to the heavy rains affecting the grounds. As a result the matches were moved and played at Victoria Park. The change in plans however did not dampen the great skills and enthusiasm which were on display on the day.

A total of 12 teams played in the Cup, representing Sri Lankan, Bhutanese, Nepalese, Indian, Pakistani, Afghan, the Australian Army and SAPOL community groups. Immigration SA and Adelaide University also participated in the 1-day event.

In summary everyone who turned up for the event was a winner. Besides the game there were also cultural performances and food. A word of thanks to the dancers from the Nepalese community, who provided entertainment at the presentation. Work Visa Lawyers believes in the participation of community events and we look forward to the next Friendship Cup in 2018.
