    ESFNA condemns in the strongest terms the killing of Ethiopian Christians captured in Libya as a 'criminal' effort to create religious divisions.

    The mass murder of Ethiopian nationals by the Islamic Terrorist group ISIS in Libya and the xenophobic attacks in South Africa against Ethiopians and other African immigrants has to stop.  

    Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected and the families of the deceased.

    ESFNA Signs Stadium Contract for its 32nd Annual Soccer Tournament

    Ethiopian Sports Federation of North America (ESFNA) is happy to announce the signing of the stadium contract at Capitol One Field at Byrd Stadium-University of Maryland. As a reminder the 30th Anniversary was held in the same Stadium in 2013 and it was estimated about 50,000 people attended the week long program; and this year shall be no exception as we predict the same, if not a higher level of support and attendance. 

    Our 32nd Annual Soccer and Cultural week long gathering of Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia is going to be held from June 28, 2015 to July 4, 2015.    We are once again ready to celebrate the rich Ethiopian culture and heritage as well as promote positive environment within the Ethiopian community in North America. We remain committed to “Bringing Ethiopians Together” to network, support businesses, the community, empower the young by providing scholarships and mentoring programs; and ensure the continuity of our ideals in perpetuity. 

    And this year, without a doubt, in the largest hub of Ethiopian community outside Ethiopia, ESFNA 2015 is going to be the Must-Attend event of the year. With dozens of competitive soccer games among 31 member clubs from around North America, hundreds of food, dry good vendors and non-profit charitable organizations and premier entertainment featuring top Ethiopian artists on multiple nights; something magical is bound to happen.
