HOMELESS WORLD CUP

Team Scotland have won the Homeless World Cup on two occasions, in 2007 and 2011, and we are proud to represent the nation as the official team partner.

Street Soccer Scotland are the official team partner for Team Scotland, giving players experiencing homelessness and social exclusion the opportunity to represent Scotland at competitions from the Homeless World Cup Foundation.

The Homeless World Cup is a global annual event, with both men’s and women’s competitions taking place in an elected host nation. Previous tournaments have taken place in iconic locations such as Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, under the Eiffel Tower in Paris as well as other major cities like Melbourne, Amsterdam and Mexico City.

The format for the tournament is four-a-side games lasting 14 minutes each. There is a group stage and knockouts with massive crowds packed around small-sided artificial pitches. 

Over 50 nations are represented at each tournament, with over 500 players taking part. Of those participating:

  • 94% Say the Homeless World Cup positively impacted their lives
  • 83% Improved social relations with family and friends
  • 77% Changed their lives significantly because of their involvement in football
  • 71% Continue to play the sport
