This is what we do every week.. We practice soccer at refugee camps.. Fields or no fields;-) This is a sweet sweet film from cinematographer Foldager – who joined a practice in Red Cross camp Kongelunden.
Thank you Ganni, Cover, Essie, Unibrew, fodboldfabrikken, sensational Sunday players, all you amazing Girls for playing, hummel and Red Cross and all our asylum teams. See you again in March and June. See all the pictures here.
xx the Sensational Team.
At this years Sensational Football tournament on Roskilde Festival with hummel, we played with a orange Sensational 1 Football which is the same measurements as the original Sensational 1 but is made in a collaboration with the orangekarma project between Roskilde Festival and hummel. It is an awesome totally orange football, that stay funky as it gets used. And a bonus is if you buy it you support the Asylum United project with 100 kr.
At this years Sensational Football Tournament the orangekarma project made a Orange Sneak that also supports the Asylum United project with 100 kr for each pair of shoes sold. They match the football and is a cool merchandise from Roskilde Festival and the tournament. So if you want to support the project and wants something fun to show for it, go buy a ball, a pair of shoes our both – anyway THANKS for you support.!
We just wrapped up this years Sensational Football at Roskilde Festival with the orangekarma collaboration, between Roskilde and hummel. And it was a huge succes for the fourth years, wonderful people and players. In addtion to all the players we could welcome 4 asylum camps football teams and their trainers. They came around 60 people and played with us.
FC Kongelunden won the Asylum tournament on tuesday and the trainers made a team, Team Etnic, in the regular tournament and won on monday and toke the second place in the finals. It was magical to see all these women smile, dance and play. They and we had a blast.
The trainers and players set up a nail and hair bar where they put on nail polish and braided hair for 20 kr to collect money for the asylum united football camp in december. It was a total success, both boys and girls came by and got their nails and hair done, and at some point we had some randon boys helping out the women. We are definatly doing that again if the girls are up for it.
We made a bunch of pictures from the days that you can go see here.

Video: One year ago we started weekly soccer practice at Red Cross Refugee camps. It has been an amazing journey. Suddenly we understand how difficult it is to have very little influence on your own life. We try to motivate, be friends, help build network and shape them into strong players. Mildred one of our have decided that she will build a girls soccer camp in Kenya if she is kick out of Denmark. She is one of our goalkeepers. She is taking some control trying to keep her sane and giving her skills that can pass on to the next generation. We are extremely proud of our players.
