It’s the time of the year where most people across America spend with their friends and families celebrating unity and giving thanks for the blessings they have received.
It’s also a time filled with traditions, such as family walks, watching The Rose Parade, NFL Football, The Armenian Telethon (it’s an Armenian thing), and of course, the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all the dressings, side dishes, and deserts.
At FAFC, we have our own traditions – the annual FAFC Thanksgiving Day soccer match! This past Thanksgiving, the Fresno Armenian Futból Club hosted it’s 6th Annual Thanksgiving Day soccer match at Buchanan High School from 8-10AM.
Consisting of two teams of 9 players, FAFC’s Ararat and Masis teams battled it out over two 45-minute halves, working up a ferocious Thanksgiving day appetite!
If you missed out on this fun event, don’t worry there’s always next Thanksgiving! Or you can just join our club and get that Thanksgiving day feeling every weekend!
