2021 Opening Ceremony



The McDonald’s Kanga Cup is the biggest international youth football tournament in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the top five tournaments of its kind in the world!

All competing teams are invited to attend the Opening Ceremony and celebrate the beginning of the 2021 McDonald’s Kanga Cup!

The 2021 Opening Ceremony will take place in the heart of Canberra at Reconciliation Place on the shores of Lake Burley-Griffin, having been based here in 2019 we are glad to be back and continue using this beautiful area.

The McDonald’s Kanga Cup is an unrivaled week of football and fun with busy days of football partnered by a great social program. There is no better way to kick off the week then with a massive Opening Ceremony.

The 2021 Opening Ceremony will begin at 2pm, Sunday 4th July. McDonald’s Kanga Cup teams will need to arrive in the area by 1pm.

Opening Ceremony attendees are encouraged to bring camping chairs to ensure a seat throughout!
