In 2003, Tim Openshaw lived in Singapore. An avid Welsh rugby fan, he was concerned that the Rugby World Cup was approaching, because he had no fellow Wales supporters with whom to watch the matches.
Tim sent an open email invitation to all his local contacts, calling for any Wales fans to meet at a local venue, and asked everyone to spread the word. On match day, 300 Wales supporters arrived, all looking for atmosphere and the same feeling of Welsh connection.
They found their World.
