The World Police & Fire Games (WPFG) came to Belfast for the first time from 1st - 10th August 2013. It featured almost 7,000 competitors across 56 sports at 41 venues, with 3,500 volunteers. The WPFG is a biennial event for serving and retired police, fire, prison and border security officers. WPFG is the third largest international multi-sport event in the world and the largest ever sporting event to take place in Northern Ireland. The concept of promoting sport and fraternity within the police and fire fighting communities began in 1967, with the staging of the first ever California Police Olympics. This concept grew and led to the establishment of the World Police & Fire Games Federation (WPFGF) in 1983, with the first Games taking place in San Jose in 1985.

These dudes are playing soccer. Or football as we call it in the UK
Not much is happening in this shot but I like the clarity of it and the contrasts between dark and light
