The awarding of the Cup was made by the Federal Minister of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, Andrew Giles, who was in attendance.

“I congratulate South Melbourne on their win and look forward to next year’s tournament,” Mr Papastergiadis added.

Vice President of the GCM, Michael Karamitos, congratulated South Melbourne and was full of praise for the host club, Mill Park.

“What an amazing four weeks of football and I sincerely thank Jim Christou and his entire team for putting on an amazing event,” Mr Karamitos said.
