Jerry Gbardy MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

On May 20, 2017, the African Canadian Soccer and Cultural Association hosted a successful African Awards Night in the City of Burnaby amidst pomp and pageantry. This event would not have happened without the participation of everyone who had a hand in its planning and execution. In this public manner, we would like to thank His Worship, Hon. Jonathan X Cote, Mayor of the City of New Westminster for attending the program and most importantly, serving as Keynote Speaker on the night.

Next year, 2018, we are expected to organize the first edition of the Africa Day Cultural festival. Our association has opened up a partnership with the City of New Westminster which, we are excited to announce, will play host to the festival.

Moving forward, we extend a hand of welcome and many thanks and appreciations to our new partner and sponsor, the Ethiopian Airlines which played a major role in hosting the program, in addition to our traditional sponsors and partners in progress, namely: City of Burnaby, Umbro Canada, Afro Hair Studio, Abantu, Western Union, and Canadian Tire Jumpstart.

As a matter of fact, Ethiopian Airlines donated two round trip tickets for travel to any part of the world the airline flies with Toronto as the departure city. We are indeed grateful to them and to all our sponsors and hope that they will continue the partnership to help us make our community vibrant.

As for our patrons and event sponsors, we would like to extend many thanks and appreciations to: Solorose International Market, Platform Media International, All Class Beauty Saloon, Julie's Hair Studio, Northwold Transport & Towing, and several individual patrons who made it work for us. We cannot also forget all the honorees, parents and dignitaries and the general public for their support.

Now that the Awards Night is out of the way, we will shift our focus on the annual African Soccer Tournament which takes place from August 11-13. We are pleased to announce that this year, the tournament will be held at the west end of the Burnaby Sports Complex (turf fields). Registration is now in progress and teams will be accommodated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Finally, we welcome the 2016 Champions, Uganda and look forward to seeing them defend their title. We also welcome new teams and all the teams that participated in previous years in this highly competitive tournament which has been in existence for the past 23 consecutive years. We look forward to a better 2017 African Soccer Tournament and we humbly beseech all the teams to participate in an atmosphere of fair play and good sportsmanship. May the best team win!

Yours truly,

Jerry Gbardy
PRESIDENT
