Football Fever Fundraiser

31st October 2008
Football Fever Fundraiser

Street football hits Civic Square next Friday to support the New Zealand Homeless Football World Cup Team.
The day culminates with the viewing of the internationally recognised film ‘Kicking It’. The feature documentary, narrated by Colin Farrell, follows seven players from different corners of the world to the Homeless World Cup.

Kicking It screens at the Illot Theatre (Wellington Town Hall) at 6pm. Tickets are $10 (at the door) or a cash donation with proceeds going to send the NZ team to the Street Football World Cup in Melbourne.

Downtown Community Ministry is delighted to have two of our service users selected for the team and many more will join in with festivities on Friday.

Earlier, at 1pm, the public are invited to join in and play street football themselves and then at 4pm two competitive matches will start.

The first match will see the Wellington Street Football Project against a celebrity team including Norm Maxwell and the second has Wellington City Council staff against the Yellow Fever Supporters’ Club.
