Due to the large number of attendees, we apologise in advance for not being able to name each and every one of them despite their great importance and the value they have brought to the event.

Remy Wehbe, the president of ALFA and co-founding director of Oz Arab Media, took the podium and welcomed more guests before introducing the keynote speaker and sports commentator Erin Molan who answered a few questions about her interesting career. This was followed by a short speech from Mayor Khal Asfour of the City of Canterbury-Bankstown who stressed on the council’s support of community harmony which is represented in the teams participating in the ALFA Cup who hail from various backgrounds.
