Leaving aside Rugby for a moment I'm going to bang the drum for Cornish football. A Cornish national team in any sport would fire national sentiment in a very positive way and provide a huge boost to that sport in the Duchy so why not a Cornish national football squad?
An all Cornwall national / regional football team? Great idea but which cup do we take part in? The choice seems to be growing.
There is the UNPO Cup, the Viva World Cup, the ELF Cup, the FIFI Wild Cup, the UEFA Regions' Cup, the Island Games and, perhaps the most promising for Kernow, Europeada organised by the Federal Union of European Nationalities.
A Europeada is planned for 2010 we just need the motivation to go. For the second edition of Europeada tournament, Europeada 2010, the regions of Lusatia and Alto Adige/South Tyrol have expressed their interest to host it.
The 2009 UEFA Regions' Cup is scheduled to take place in June 2009, with eight teams and will be hosted in Croatia.
