Sporting the tops of world football clubs Liverpool, LA Galaxy and Tottenham Hotspur, the Long Gully Legends overcome Karen Culture and Social Support Foundation B to win the final.
The tournmanent was another great success with teams enjoying some high quality play at the Futsal Institute Bendigo stadium in Golden Square.
Our Settlement Services team organised the annual tournament to encourage fun, participation and inclusion.
Each team featured at least four players who have lived in Australia for less than four years.
Long Gully Legends received a Bendigo Futsal Multicultural Tournament perpetual trophy.
Futsal is a modified version of traditional soccer and embraced around the world.
The popularity of the sport with Karen and Afghan communities in Bendigo motivated BCHS to kick off the annual tournament in 2014.
Settlement Services manager Martine Street said organising events such as the futsal tournament was important for the BCHS team.
"Participation in organised activities, social connection and physical activity are priority areas for the work done by our staff - it's great to see that effort rewarded with events such as this multicultural futsal tournament," she said.
