Ethio Stars Football Club are seen during the All Ethiopian Sports Association’s first annual soccer tournament, AESAOne 2012, at RFK Stadium. The AESA, which was founded this year, is one of the two major amateur Ethiopian soccer organizations in the United States; the other is the Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America, which has been holding an annual soccer tournament for 29 years. The AESA was formed by defectors from the ESFNA, which is holding its tournament in Dallas, also in the first week of July.
