Amaanah Lions

sport is a powerful tool for integration and advancement. 

The Amaanah Lions is a championship winning soccer team in the Houston Football Association, comprised of young refugees and recent immigrants.

Young people from any background aged 16-25 are welcome to join us for recreational and competitive play all year round. 

Games are played on Sundays at Bear Creek Pioneer’s Park. In the 2024/25 season, Amaanah Lions will play in the Championship.

We’re here to help Houston refugees adapt to their new environment through soccer, supporting them as they build friendships, integrate into a new city and find their place in America.

Everyone is welcome. If you were born ten thousand miles away or ten minutes, you’ll be able to train and play with us.

About the Amaanah Lions

  • They had to tackle obstacles that I did as well, so I had a bigger connection from that. At the end of the day, it’s about family. Mluli Mmunga
