“Football should be for free. And the Fitzroy Lions are making sure kids play for free.”
That’s the mission of Abdulmalik Abdurahman, the founder of Fitzroy Lions SC, a youth football club in Melbourne, Australia.
The club and its players have become a unifying force for their community. With a shared goal to provide access to sport for girls and boys, Nike has partnered with the Lions since the start of their 2018 season.
