The All Nations League

After several tournaments and coaching sessions aimed at asylum seekers in 2002, Football Unites set up the All Nations League in 2003. Working together with the Sheffield Hallamshire County FA, Sheffield First for Safety and local refugee agencies, the All Nations League was organised and offered teams from all over the world the opportunity to play football against each other in a tournament. The league has been running every summer since and continues to attract more teams and competition.

Teams participating have included squads from Liberia, Eritrea, Somalia, Kosovo, Albania, Kurdistan, Yemen and Afghanistan.

The African Dream Team, who won the first All Nations League in 2003, now play a key role in organising the event. In 2004 the team joined a local affiliated 11-a-side Sunday league.
