With eight participating nations coming together, the Street Soccer Nations Cup will offer a life-changing experience for players who are suffering from social isolation.
An occasion to connect, an opportunity to play, a chance to celebrate. Street Soccer Scotland are bringing eight nations together to host the first Street Soccer Nations Cup, this September in Dundee.
This event will provide an opportunity for players from Street Football projects across the globe to represent their country in our inaugural small-sided tournament. For many, these experiences can be life-changing, highlighting the power that sport has to influence positive change. We believe that by holding this event in Scotland, we can highlight the impact that football programmes, such as ours, can have in the community.
The societal issues that Dundee has faced in recent years have been well documented, and we believe the nations cup and its programme of events can highlight some of the positive action being taken by partners across Dundee, underlining how the power of community (and football) can be part of the solution in creating change.
The problems that our players face are shared by many across the world and we believe that by coming together and sharing these experiences, we can offer hope, happiness and self-belief.
All eyes are now on September and we can’t wait to welcome our guests from England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Ivory Coast and an Afghanistan select.
