The Homeless World Cup is an annual, international football tournament. The project works through a network of over 70 national partners to support and promote grassroot football programmes. Since the first tournament in 2003, the Homeless World Cup has been carried out on four continents.

Homeless World Cup aims to “beat homelessness through football”. Over the years, more than 50’000 homeless people have been involved and encouraged to transform their lives. The impact has been significant: 70% of players have used the power of football to change their lives.
