ESFNA is delighted to announce that Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has officially proclaimed July 2 - 8, 2017 "Ethiopians' Week", in honor of ESFNA's 34th Annual Soccer Tournament & Cultural Festival, sponsored by Uber, to be held at Renton Stadium.
Mayor Murray notes: "this week-long soccer tournament will be a way for Ethiopians to come together in order to celebrate their culture and identity, to assure the continuity of their ideals in perpetuity" and adds, "this tournament will provide a platform at which Ethiopians can come to express their humanity through sports and other cultural interactions amongst themselves and the Seattle community"
ESFNA is truly humbled by this gesture from Mayor Murray, and is grateful to the City of Seattle for welcoming us with such open arms!
