ESFNA 2018 Dallas, Texas Opening Day


ESFNA 2018 Dallas, Texas Opening Day

The Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America (ESFNA), founded in 1984, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promote the rich Ethiopian culture and heritage as well as build positive environment within Ethiopian-American communities in North America.  Its mission is bringing Ethiopians together to network, supporting the business community, empowering the young by providing scholarships and mentoring programs, primarily using soccer tournaments, other sports activities and cultural events as a vehicle.


Founded in 1984, ESFNA is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing Ethiopians together, using sports and cultural events as a vehicle.

Will serve as the official 2018 venue, and the site of all tournament matches and cultural festivities.


With one of the worst famines to date, ESFNA has pledged to donate $100,000 to relief efforts in Ethiopia. It is estimated that about 14 million people are affected by the drought. We urge all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia to collectively come to the aid of the country in averting what is labeled as the worst famine in the history of the country and continent.


ESFNA has selected Catholic Relief Services (CRS) after an exhausting review of 18 potential organizations that are expertise in the famine relief services area. This does not necessarily mean that ESFNA will not partner or work with other organizations. In fact, it will also focus its efforts in partnering with local NGOs in Ethiopia in the near future.
