The AMES Cup Game On event on Wednesday 25 May also gave the 200-plus players a chance to practise English in a social setting, make new friends and forge community connections.
AFL stars from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds Jason Johannisen and Lin Jong were on hand to share skill tips and explain the rules.
AMES Australia has helped new and recently arrived refugees to settle in Victoria for 60 years.
