Club History

By: David Billy

Do you have a home field where you practice or play regularly?
I am part of a group of suburban players who play every Sunday in Havertown.

What made you interested in participating in the Unity Cup?
The competitiveness of the tournament, as every participant wants to represent its country of origin in the best possible way.

What was your favorite moment from last year’s tournament?
Definitely not losing all 3 games, but giving our best each game.

Can you tell us a bit about the rest of your team?
The 2018 France team will be younger, and we hope to do better and build for the future.

What does soccer mean to your community?
Like most countries, soccer is the #1 sport in France. Most of us grew up watching “Zizou” and Les Bleus winning the ‘98 World Cup.

How do you think soccer in general (and the Unity Cup in particular) promotes inclusivity?
As a ‘suburban’ player, participating in the Unity Cup, it makes me feel like I am actually a member of the city at large, and not just living next to it.

What’s one thing you wish more people knew about your team’s country?
Best wine and cheese! But you knew that already!
