Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said he was proud to provide a home for the Myanmar Football for Peace Festival this year.

“Following the success of the 2020 African Cup NSW, we are excited to host our second football tournament at Wanderers Football Park welcoming many communities gathering in support of the Burmese people through the Myanmar Football for Peace Festival,” said Tsatsimas. 

“Football is a global language and it is important that we can provide a home and support for tournaments like the Myanmar Peace Cup and welcome their teams and community.

“Our thoughts are also with the people in Myanmar who are going through extremely difficult times and I hope that the solidarity shown at the Festival as well as the funds raised can make a difference.”

Director of Football United Myanmar Dr Tun Aung Scwe hopes the power of football can promote peace. 

“We are celebrating the power of football to promote peace in this festival to show our support to the people in Myanmar and express hopes for rapid restoration of peace and stability in the country,” said Dr Shwe.
