Dear Friends:

Thank you for making 2017 Vancouver International Soccer Festival/One Team United For Peace Society our most meaningful year up to date!

It was such a special year with it being both the 13th Anniversary coinciding with Canada 150. Welcome to Canada everyone!

This year’s highlight was the participation of the Tibet Women’s Soccer Team competed at the 2017 Vancouver International Soccer Festival (VISF) as special guests and Ambassadors of Peace. This is the first Tibetan women’s team of any sport to compete internationally. Tibet Women’s Soccer Team and VISF received significant local and International media attention, including, CBC, Global TV, Novus TV, BBC, NBC, ABC, NBC, NEW YORK TIMES, ESPN, USA TODAY, and much more. Associated Press (AP) and other media outlets will be publishing follow up stories in the coming days. Please, visit www.oneteamunited.ca/media.php and read inspiring stories! More to come!

In addition to Team Tibet, Team Syria, Team U.S.A, First Nations Teams, Canadian Law Enforcement teams, hundreds of International, national, multi ethnic players from across Metro Vancouver, Alberta, Ontario, as well as international participants from ESL Schools, competed in the tournament and made it our best year up to date. It was a great time! Vancouver Deputy Mayor, Councillor Andrea Reimer, Elders from the Vancouver First Nations, Soccer Legend Andrea Neil, English Legend Gordon Jago, and many community leaders, and members of the media among our guests.

In addition to creating an awesome free admission inclusive event, we raised significant funds and paid for team Tibet’s living expenses in Vancouver! The VISF 2017 also created awareness about three additional worthy causes: Cops For Cancer, Canadian Blood Services, and the East Vancouver Newcomer Camp. Thank you of allowing us to serve worthy causes.

Thanks to your contributions! Despite the Challenges and growing pains, this is one of our best year up to date! We're proud of this and simply could not have done it without your support. Thank you!

VISF is already excited about 2018! More exciting news about 2018 VISF is coming soon!
