In 2011 we established Asylum United; a weekly soccer practice for refugee women living in asylum camps in Denmark who would attended games and tournaments on a national level.
The refugee teams also joined our Sensational street soccer tournament at Roskilde Music Festival. The event hosts 120 women soccer teams camping for three days.
Today Asylum United has grown into its own organisation in Denmark and is run by a brilliant group of women. Everywhere we go, we organize events and reach out to women living in refugee situations to invite them to come share experiences, play and be part of the local soccer.
