The opportunity to play Football every Monday is a much welcomed break from the otherwise trivial life in the Schnackenburgallee Refugeecamp in Hamburg.
The idea was to produce a film, that portraits the refugees in a positive and non partial way. We deliberately kept out all of the crisis footage and wanted to show the refugees how they really are – people like you and me. The film shows an actual initiative – without highlighting any suffering and remaining neutral by showing the friendship that grew, regardless of their social and geographical background and with this supporting each other. Abelone is proud to present Supporter/s.
In August 2015 a group of law students founded a football initiative for refugees to play football for free with them in Hamburg. The initiative was carried out on a entirely voluntary basis with no financial support in any way. The initiative shows what a small step and a football pitch can achieve in welcoming refugees into their new country.
