As part of the Street League program we bring all the counties involved in the Big issue leagues together at a venue in Dublin to participate in the All Ireland street soccer finals.
28 teams participated in 2012 approximately 300 players and this was only limited due to logistical reasons.
The finals are an important occasion and all the participants look forward to it.
It provides them with a platform to display their skills. It further encourages the process of integration and validates the efforts the lads have made in their progress both in recovery and towards better futures
We provide venue, full catering facilities, medical services, high profile guests and use the occasion to present awards to each league and their nominated players rewarding their efforts throuhout the year.
