Road to the World Football 2020 | Stop 1: Darfur United vs Cascadia AFF
The Darfur United Men’s Team is set to play Cascadia AFF for the first-ever CONIFA game on North American soil! The match will be held on July 27, 2019 at French Field in Kent, WA with kick off at 1:00pm. The Darfur United Men’s Team will be in town for a mini two-day camp leading up to the game. Tickets are available here! This match will be the first home international friendly hosted by Cascadia and will be the first in a ‘home and away’ match series against Darfur United; a CONIFA El Clásico if you will!
This official CONIFA match is an essential start to Darfur United’s ROAD TO THE WORLD FOOTBALL CUP 2020 which will be held in the Summer of 2020 in Somaliland, Africa. It will be the team’s third international tournament since its creation in 2012. The formation of the team and its participation in global tournaments have given Darfuri refugees a world stage on which to represent their people—and all refugees—and bring attention to some of the most vulnerable and forgotten populations.
