Football United Youth Flip Video’s Her “Breakfast on the Bridge” Experience


November 7, 2010 - 4 Comments

As Football Federation Australia’s official IT Network partner for Australia’s bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, Cisco and FFA families from the Football United program had the unique opportunity to experience ‘Breakfast on the Bridge’, in Sydney Australia. Armed with Flip Video cameras kindly provided by Cisco, the kids filmed their amazing day!

‘Breakfast on the Bridge’ is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, with only 6,000 people lucky enough to experience the event this year. Australia’s most famous icon, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, turned green as grass was rolled out along the road deck to create a dazzling picnic spot.

There were plenty of surprises on the day, with the theme of the picnic Football, to boost the bid for Sydney, Australia to hold the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Giant inflatable soccer balls and a soccer field were clearly visible from the sky, with soccer stars from the Socceroo’s and Matilda’s also attending the event to show their support.

Football United is a program that uses the power of football to help improve social cohesion and harmony in communities with high proportions of refugee, immigrant and indigenous people. This Flip Video is the experience of one young girl from the Football United program at the ‘Breakfast on the Bridge’.
