Can you tell us about your team’s make-up? How did your team come together?
It was an idea of some of the elders to gather at least once a month to discuss everything social… that’s where the idea came from to play soccer every Sunday morning, then have a little fun after because more young people are coming into the USA from Togo, and they needed something to keep them together.
How do you think soccer in general (and the Unity Cup in particular) promotes inclusivity?
By promoting other countries’ cultures, and it’s a network to get friends.
What places (such as restaurants or cultural centers) or groups in Philadelphia would you recommend to someone if they wanted to learn more about the culture of the country your team represents?
Atap Community, Kanleto FC (every Sunday morning), and Togo Link Up (every July).
What’s one thing you wish more people knew about your team’s country?
