There are three things that Africans do in this country – we go to school, we go to work and we go to Western Union. We don’t really have a lot of distractions because we have to support our families back home.

Our role is to assist African communities - from there, we knew we had to find another way to bring the community together and for Africans, nothing can unite people like football. You don’t have to speak the same language; you just have to love the game and we love the game.

There are a lot of Africans in the Bronx which means we’re here to stay and we have to find ways to integrate into the community and football is definitely one of them.

That’s how the African Nations Cup got started and since, a lot of people from different countries whose paths may not have crossed before, have come to know each other and become friends.

We started with four countries in the tournament in the first year and it’s grown now to become 20, playing out of Macomb’s Dam Park over six weekends. This is part of the Bronx Week celebrations – we always make sure to stage the final the day before the Bronx Day parade, so that the winning team will join the parade with their trophy and march. It gets very emotional.
