The Community Cup is centralized upon the popular seven-on-seven recreational soccer tournament, where teams participate with a goal to engage one another, make new friends and support each other.

The Community Zone will feature various community agencies offering services to newcomers in Hamilton. The Community Tent perfectly captures the spirit of the entire event – an opportunity for newcomer families and the integrated Hamilton community to share and connect.
