AXF Cup final
We were proud sponsors again of the AXF Cup charity tournament, held on 16 February 2014 at Club Veneto, Bulleen, in Melbourne’s northeast.
It is the second year that AXF has sponsored the community soccer tournament, organised by the Melbourne Chinese Soccer Association (MCSA) in conjunction with Melbourne Heart Football Club and the Victorian Police Soccer Club.
Six teams competed for the Chinese New Year title, with an additional ‘friendly’ match played between a combined MCSA and Melbourne Heart FC representative women’s team and the Victorian Police’s women’s side.
The competition was strong, but it was the Heidelberg Stars who took out the honours, defeating the MCSA United team in an exciting AXF Cup final, while a Chinese dragon and lion dancers and drummers entertained the crowds.
The Heidelberg Stars were awarded AXF Cup, and all money raised on the day will go towards supporting The Big Issue Street Soccer program.
We are looking forward to more healthy competition when the Cup returns in 2015!
