Founded in 2003, the Homeless World Cup is an annual tournament that brings a sense of purpose to people who may feel like they’ve lost theirs, and helps inspire them to change their lives. Through our network across 70+ countries, we are active 365 days a year in our mission to end homelessness.

Being homeless can be incredibly isolating, making people feel removed from society and alone. Joining a football team can be a small but hugely significant step in helping an individual to become part of a community.

We use football as a global support network to help and inspire people struggling to make a home for themselves. We want to create an environment for them in which they are empowered to change their own lives. We want our tournament teams to feel like champions before they’ve even stepped on the pitch.

Each year, our international network of member countries inspires more than 100,000 homeless people across the globe. Over 500 players participate each year in more than 400 games over 8 days.
