World Refugee Day also brings out some fantastic (and unique) fashion in Syracuse. This year was no exception, as the soccer tournament featured a few coaches on the sidelines with a flair for style.

Bravo to the organizers of World Refugee Day here in Syracuse.  This year organizers moved the event to Schiller Park and added a dimension of excitement with a soccer tournament featuring teams from countries represented in the city.

The tournament was the perfect addition to the event, and the idea was also ripe for a city under the spell of FIFA’s World Cup first round action.

Many of the games were decided by sudden death shoot outs
