Street Soccer London will once again be proudly representing Team England on its travels, with a men’s and women’s squad on its way to Dundee for the Street Soccer Nations Cup.
The Nations Cup was created to give player an opportunity to represent their country and connect with like-minded people from across the globe. For many, this experience may be life-changing and will highlight the power that sport has to influence and make tangible, positive change.
We believe that by uniting, coming together and sharing these experiences, we can offer connection, hope, happiness and build self-belief. The tournament will feature sixteen teams in a four-a-side format.
The event will take place on City Square in Dundee and will be free to attend. Find out more here.
This years Team England squad is made up players from Street Soccer London programmes and Comfort Angels from Liverpool.
Comfort Angels is a women’s football team in Merseyside that works primarily with refugees. Comfort Angels provides much-needed support by bringing communities together and offering a safe space for women to express themselves freely.
The players selected will have the opportunity to create long-lasting relationships and be part of an event that aims to change perceptions.
