Mavromoustakos brothers raise funds for African kids in need during Sydney soccer match


Chants of ‘Let’s go Chrisos’ and ‘Let’s go Yianni’ echoed across the Seymour Shaw Stadium in the Sydney suburb of Miranda on Sunday, January 8 as the Mavromoustakos brothers went head-to-head for a charity soccer match.

Team Chrisos and Team Yianni were evenly matched in the first half of the soccer game, but Team Chrisos came out fighting in the second half to claim victory 7 – 2.

The victory was the third in a row for Team Chrisos and was met with loud applause from the crowd.

“The crowd was unbelievable and I think everyone enjoyed themselves, that’s the main thing,” Chrisos told The Greek Herald after the event.

The charity soccer match was being held to raise money for charity, Paradise 4 Kids, to support the critical missionary work of Reverend Themi in Africa. Just $20 provides food, education and clothing for up to four children a month.

Throughout the day, attendees could give donations or purchase raffle tickets to win a number of prizes such as hampers and a Macarthur FC jersey.

“It was a truly blessed day, bringing together families, friends and the broader community. We are thrilled with the success of the event, allowing us to raise critical funds for Paradise 4 Kids,” Chrisos said.

“We look forward to seeing new faces in 2024 for such a special day.”
