Interstan Securities Organizes a Football Cup for Junior Teams
Interstan Securities is proud to support Street Football (or, Street Soccer, as one wishes) for the young - an unofficial sport based on football rules which brings together street teams and provides an incentive for girls and boys - often from poor and socially unprotected backgrounds - to realize their ambitions in sport. Internationally its annual championship is known as The Homeless World Cup, which has a 20-year history.
To promote sport among the youngsters in Kyrgyzstan Interstan Securities instituted The Interstan Cup - a Street Football tournament for teams from the country's orphanages. The event is organized in partnership with the Street Football Federation of the Kyrgyz Republic.
The Federation participates in the Homeless World Cup every year, sending the team of players who passed the selection in home tournaments. It also joins other international tournaments which are held several times a year.
The first Interstan Cup was held on July 26-27, 2022 in the resort town of Sary Oy on the Issyk Kul lake. The championship was supervised by the Women’s Football League of Kyrgyzstan.
Four teams competed in an intense game. The winner was the Karakol Team, from the Karakol town on the Issyk Kul lake.
Interstan Securities will continue to support this initiative and will make The Interstan Cup a regular event.
