The Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America (ESFNA) is pleased to announce that the 2018 Soccer Tournament & Cultural Festival will be taking place in Dallas, Texas from the dates of July 1st – July 7th, 2018. Increasingly becoming a melting pot of cultures, Dallas is an extremely diverse city, with over 25% of its population being foreign-born, including the third-largest Ethiopian population in the United States, with a population in excess of 30,000.

Dallas is home to the most corporate headquarters in America. Additionally, the city offers more restaurants (including 7 different Ethiopian restaurants) and shopping centers per capita than any other U.S. city, as well as a flourishing nightlife scene. This makes Dallas a premier business and leisure destination.

Be sure to save the date for #DALLAS2018, and check in the coming weeks for updates regarding hotel reservations, stadium information, vendor applications (food, dry goods, and non-profit), flight discounts, and special events the week of the tournament.

The 2018 tournament will serve as a special affair, as it marks ESFNA’s 35th Anniversary. We look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with our all of our guests this summer!


We’ll see you in Dallas!
