Melbourne Heart will participate in the AXF Cup Chinese New Year Charity Tournament on Sunday 16 February from 11.30am, with all money raised from this year-s tournament going towards the Big Issue Street Soccer program.

This year will be the third successive year Melbourne Heart will be participating in the one-day tournament. Unite FC will play against teams including the Melbourne Chinese Soccer Association and the Victoria Police Soccer Club to help celebrate the Chinese New Year.

Supporters are encouraged to attend the tournament held at the Veneto Club in Bulleen from 11.30am on Sunday for a gold coin donation, with all proceeds donated to the Big Issue Street Soccer.
