Street Football Wales

Currently we have 4 leagues based in Swansea, Newport, Merthyr Tydfil and Colwyn Bay. Our league season runs over 8 matchdays (once a month) from March to October with 2 cup competitions one locally which is during the season and a National Social Inclusion Cup Competition at the end of the season.

Street Football Wales is there for people when they have reached that point. It’s an opportunity for people to be involved in something where they will not be judged or stigmatised.

SFW developed and delivers its Training & Education programme to participants from within SFW attending and gaining qualifications. Participant volunteers are actively involved in the delivery of the project with participants attending monthly Branch Meetings.

The International participation (Homeless World Cup) programme has also been incredibly successful during the past 10 years with record numbers of participants being assessed during the 2013 season. SFW also facilitates a female programme to enable representation from this group at the HWC.

Description: Street Football Wales (SFW) is a social inclusion charity that exists to improve the lives & opportunities for socially excluded people in Wales using street football. All Street Football programmes are made up of team members aged 16 and above and facing social exclusion through homelessness, substance misuse, mental ill health or cultural issues.

Services Offered: SFW aims to create a nationwide Street Football network capable of engaging with those furthest away from mainstream support provision.
