Barcelona or Madrid? No, Palestine!

Collection of Palestine national football team cards

What is your favourite football club? Barcelona or Real Madrid maybe? Talking about Palestinian football is rare, even if there is a national team. The Palestine national team was first recognised by FIFA in 1998, following the creation of the Palestinian Authority in the Oslo Accords. Through this groundbreaking move, players should, in theory, have been able to travel internationally, but the reality has proven otherwise. The Palestine national team did not have the chance to develop in the international football scene, as players were not permitted to travel and participate, thus restricting the team from playing with the best international players.

This collection of cards represents the national team of Palestine. Illustrating the political situation of the players on the one hand, it also shows the increasing popularity of the team. The cards should be part of an exchange all over the world.
