The CONIFA Diaries: London 2018

In the CONIFA Diaries, I give a day by day lowdown on all the action at the Barawa hosted tournament in London. Below, you’ll find all the entries plus a link to my book on the 2018 tournament (and all the teams that play it, their struggles, and their goals), as well as a few assorted bits and pieces I did during the tournament. 

There’s quite a lot of this, so this page essentially aims to give you all the links in one place, should you feel like exploring. Dig in…
