Green and Spiegel Helps Bring Together Refugee Team In Philadelphia Unity Cup

Jonathan A. Grode

Green and Spiegel was proud to be a part of this year’s Philadelphia Unity Cup, a World Cup-style tournament held over several months. The Philadelphia International Unity Cup unites the city’s neighborhoods and celebrates the city's diverse immigrant communities through soccer. The 2017 co-ed tournament included an all Refugee Team, with Green and Spiegel’s Practice Director Jonathan Grode â€‹helping to coordinate the funding and equipment to participate. The Refugee Team in this year’s Unity Cup consisted of 25 refugees and SIVs (Special Immigrant Visa). They represented nine countries including Iraq, Syria, Cuba, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The team’s players and the story behind the team’s formation are an inspiration. For more information regarding the Philadelphia Unity Cup please visit here.
