South Wales Police FC used monies received from the FAW Kickback scheme to help pay for their involvement in the World Police and Fire Games that recently took place in Fairfax, Virginia, USA.
The Games take place every two years and involve over 10,000 competitors in over 60 different sports. The opening ceremony took place at the RFK stadium in Washington in front of 25,000 people where the South Wales team paraded in full uniform led by the Wales and south Wales police flags.
On the field hopes were high after securing the silver medal in New York in 2011 but after progressing from the group stages the team lost to Singapore police in the first knock out round.
The group gave a great account of themselves on and off the pitch and represented SWP, Wales and themselves immaculately.
The next Games are in Montreal in 2017 and SWPFC already plan to take part again.
