The event was made possible thanks to EU Erasmus Plus and was good to catch up with our friends from the Homeless World Cup too. It was a result of the HWC that the Street Soccer Association decided to switch to Fairtrade balls.
One hundred players from 10 countries took part in the event held at the Victoria Warehouse in the shadow of the mighty Old Trafford.
The players, referees and organisers all seemed to love the Bala Fairtrade futsal balls. As well as thinking they looked like Pokémon balls, the low bounce and smaller (size 4) size proved a hit and it was a real delight for us to see this tournament being played Fairly with our balls.
OK, enough words, enjoy the rest of the pics below and get a flavour of the passion, determination and pleasure players get from being part of an event like this.
