Australia-China Youth Assoc. joins SMFC as Community Partner

South Melbourne FC is delighted to announce that the Australia-China Youth Association (ACYA) will be a Community Partner in 2016.

ACYA has a National Executive, along with 22 Chapter Committees, with 17 at Australian universities and five in Chinese cities. ACYA’s 6000+ strong membership base comprises an extensive network of young people from diverse social, cultural and sectoral backgrounds. It is through the tireless volunteer contributions of the committees and members that ACYA is able to enjoy a premier position in youth bilateral affairs today.

As part of its partnership, SMFC and ACYA will work together on a number of exciting community-based initiatives throughout 2016. SMFC will also provide ACYA members with the opportunity to become an SMFC Community member and support the Senior Men’s and Women’s teams at Lakeside Stadium this season.

SMFC Operations Manager George Kouroumalis was very pleased at the announcement of the new partnership. “We would like to welcome ACYA and all of its members into our SMFC Family. This partnership enables both community-focussed organisations to grow and broaden our membership bases. We can’t wait to start working with ACYA and we welcome them on board.”
ACYA Managing Director David Douglas was excited about the partnership. “SMFC is a fantastic community organisation that ACYA is looking forward to working closely with. Football is a very popular sport in China and by working with SMFC, it gives our members – especially our international student members from China – the chance to get involved in the sport in Australia.”
