Every two years, the Office of the Presidential Commissioner and the Service for Overseas Repatriated Cypriots implement a programme of hosting children aged 15-17 years from the "Eleftheria-Pancyprian" Soccer Team in New York, who come from families of our Diaspora of Greek and Cypriot descent with 2 coaches and 2 escorts.

For the young expatriates who are the future of our homeland and our diaspora, programmes are being implemented to encourage their involvement in the community activities in their country of residence, to get to know Cyprus, with emphasis on language learning, history and the culture of our homeland and to meet and exchange ideas with other Cypriot youth who are permanent residents of Cyprus.
In an effort to invest in the younger generations, within the context of the above programme, the children enjoy football matches with other teams from Cyprus, tours of various archaeological and historical sites,museums, monuments, churches as well as a visit and tour of “Eleftheria-Pancyprian” Soccer Team at the Presidential Palace.
In 2019, the team visited Cyprus from 15 to 24 February 2019.
