Street Soccer Through Africa And On YouTube

Five years ago, Dutch professional footballer Edgar Davids gathered a talented group of Dutch street soccer players and travelled across Europe, the United States and Latin America to take on the best local teams, on their own streets. After numerous matches in five countries, Davids’ team emerged victorious and claimed the ‘Street Legends’ monicker.



This year Davids and his Street Legends are hitting the road again to see if they’re still are worthy of the title ... and this time you can watch their journey on YouTube.







The team started in Amsterdam before heading on to London and Paris. They passed through Senegal, Kenya, Ghana, heading for the bustling townships of Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa. Along the way, the best local street players from their respective countries attempted to de-throne Davids and The Street Legends, who were joined along the way by famous football faces like Ryan Babel, Michael Essien, and Marcel Desailly.



In Africa, The Street Legends and Edgar are also embarked on a personal voyage of discovery - understanding how street soccer influences people and how it thrives across Europe and Africa every day. Along the way, Edgar visited social grassroots projects across Africa that are providing healthcare, education and hope to thousands of men and women, boys and girls. Check out some amazing moments from their visits to Senegal and Kenya.
