Homeless World Cup Amsterdam 2015 Welsh Warriors and Welsh Dragons
In 2015 the Welsh dragons and Welsh warriors set out on a Quest. The quest was to bring silverware from Amsterdam back to our home country of Wales and be the first welsh players to win in Holland. They started their quest with a few training seasons, with one of them being to conquer the Welsh hills of Swansea. One of the highest hills in Swansea city is Constitution Hill with a total elevation of 185 feet. We show below the pictures of our highs and lows of the day, please enjoy.
Following the long and gruelling pain the warriors and the dragons were pumped up and ready for the tournament.

the battle was complete
The warriors were hard hitting all the way through the tournament and all their hard work and effort found themselves in the final of the women’s plate competition. The manager Paul was in a tense state when they started the final game because he realised that for the first time he would have achieved his life’s dream of lifting his first trophy at the homeless world cup. The warriors played with the fires in their bellies needed to win.
Then the dream had come true !!!!!!!!
Everyone from the dragons to the volunteers were beyond ecstactic when the dream of silverware back to wales was realised! We all celebrated this momentous victory as though each and every one of them had been on the pitch playing the game themselves. Entering the pitch and congratulated the warriors; the party went on through the night.
We would like to congratulate everyone from the volunteers to the coaching staff and even the players for their achievements on and off the pitch. Without your support all this would have not been a reality, all of us from street football wales would like to pat you on the back and congratulate you for your effort.
