The beautiful game – in our own backyard

CoverThe annual Global Football Festival is a Christchurch celebration of the worldwide appeal of the beautiful game. This weekend and next, teams from different cultures living in Christchurch  will battle it out over three days of keen competition.

I’ve been to this event a couple of times over the years, and there’s always a relaxed, festive  atmosphere. Think a mini World Cup, but without the mind-numbingly loud vuvuzelas. The food stalls are pretty good too.

This year the eighth tournament will be played at a new venue, Linfield Park on Kearneys Road.
