Entertainment and sport can be effective ways of integration and inclusion for refugee children in societies which receive them, and this is the idea behind the project Street Soccer Cup.
For a number of years the German park Tropical Islands has supported the project, providing the necessary space for the football matches, accommodations, free tickets and prizes for participants and organizers. The final of the Brandenburg Championship took place on September 19, 2021 on the terraces of Tropical Islands.
The initiative is supported by the Federal Chancellor’s Office within the framework of the Welcome to Sport program, as well as the Alliance for Brandenburg, AOK Nordost, the F.C. Flick Foundation, Tropical Islands and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
