The Other Football World Cup

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:27 pm on 1 June 2018

Today, the World Football Cup kicked off in London - with the Isle of Man triumphing 4-1 over the Cascadia region of North America.

This tournament - more commonly known as the Rebel World Cup - is for countries and communities that aren't recognised by FIFA or, in some cases, the UN.

Kieran Pender is the media manager for the tournament's administrator, Conifa, and joins us to talk about the tournament, who's playing, and what it's trying to achieve.
