The Karen Men's National Soccer Team
Building an equitable world, one player at a time
We are excited to announce the formation of the Karen Men's National Soccer Team, an all-refugee football (soccer) team representing the Karen people around the world. Currently the team will be based in the United States with the players being refugees from Burma and Thailand. This team will be a significant step for these athletes, showcasing their talents on and off the field.
The Karen Football Association is a member of the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA). Through this organization we will be playing tournaments with other countries and football associations.
During the Spring and Summer of 2019 we will connect with players, evaluate talent, and work on our first Karen Men's National Team training camp in the United States. We look forward to seeing what will come from this exciting opportunity. Make sure to follow us on social media for all of the updates. If you have questions please contact us here.
