This should have been on 5 Live tonight The Stateless World Cup Sunday 1 July 9.00pm-9.30pm BBC RADIO 5 LIVE No South Asian team has qualified for this year's World Cup in Russia. But for some British Asians, that doesn't matter. They're gearing up for another tournament - ConIFA, the world cup for stateless people, taking place in London. Panjab FA is one of the teams taking part. They’ll be playing against the likes of Northern Cyprus, Tibet and Western Armenia. Panjab FA represents an area that stretches across parts of Eastern Pakistan and Northern India, but why is representing a country that doesn’t exist so important to these players? BBC Asian Network's Nalini Sivathasan finds out why the Stateless World Cup is about more than just football and explores why some Punjabis and Tamils feel their identities are under threat. She follows the supporters and players - most of who were born and brought up in the UK - as they put the final touches to their pre-tournament preparation. Nalini asks why British Asians with full time jobs are sacrificing their time to play for these unknown states.
