One family behind the West Bank soccer team

The current roster includes six of Abu Hammad’s sons, three grandsons and five other close relatives. The players from the hamlet of Wadi al-Nees consistently defeat richer clubs and believe their strong family bonds are a secret to their success.

Wadi al-Nees heads the West Bank’s top league which has 12 teams. It retained the No. 1 slot with a five-point difference even after losing 1-0 last Friday to archrival al-Khader, a team from a village near Bethlehem that is ranked second.

Palestinian farmer Yousef Abu Hammad sired enough boys for a soccer team – literally. Over the years, his 12 sons have formed the core of what is now the top-ranked team in the West Bank.

The current roster includes six of Abu Hammad’s sons, three grandsons and five other close relatives. The players from the hamlet of Wadi al-Nees consistently defeat richer clubs and believe their strong family bonds are a secret to their success.

Having no distractions also helps.

There’s little to do in the village except play soccer. It is perched on a hilltop just south of the biblical Bethlehem and has only about 950 residents, virtually all members of the Abu Hammad clan. Until the late 1980s, Wadi al-Nees had no running water or electricity.

“We all love soccer – kids, men, women, old and young,” said team director Ahmed Abu Hammad.

Wadi al-Nees heads the West Bank’s top league which has 12 teams. It retained the No. 1 slot with a five-point difference even after losing 1-0 last Friday to archrival al-Khader, a team from a village near Bethlehem that is ranked second.

But any defeat is hard to take for Wadi al-Nees, which has collected a cupboard full of trophies, including as league champions in 2008 and 2009 and winners of various local tournaments.

BOSTON (TheStreet) — Since its forced eviction from the Zucotti Park in New York City at the end of 2011, Occupy Wall Street may have slipped from much of the general public’s radar.
