Football – soccer to Americans – is a centerpiece of the Kibera community. Whether it’s gathering around the field to watch the local youth go head to head or cheering on the Kenyan National Team, soccer is life in Kibera. Though many families do not have a television in their homes, when a big match is on, neighbors open their homes as gathering places for neighbors and friends. Though team loyalties can get intense, rivalries are all in good fun and the shared love of soccer serves to bring the community together. Put on your team’s jersey, call some friends and start cheering!
