Anti-Racist World Cup

Football Unites took a group of 12 young people and staff to the 2007 Mondiali Antirazzisti, or Anti-Racist World Cup, held this year in Casalecchio di Reno, a suburb of Bologna, northern Italy. The tournament is an annual event, this year attracting over 200 teams, but it's the first time since 2003 that Football Unites has entered a  team.

The team, made up of local young people from the Sharrow area of Sheffield, started well with a win and a draw but then lost their next three games, finishing fifth in their group of six. They also suffered a close defeat in a very enjoyable cricket match, and visited Rimini and Venice. We are very grateful to the Sharrow NAG for helping to meet some of the costs of the seven day trip.
