The Homeless World Cup is a soccer tournament with purpose. Member Countries and the Homeless World Cup Foundation’s year-round work culminates in a world class event which has the power to change the lives of participants and shape attitudes towards this global issue, using the universal language of soccer.
The tournament has taken place for 20 years, and in cities across the world. Sacramento is the first U.S. city to host this prestigious and inspiring event.
The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a unique, pioneering charity which uses soccer to inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives through the power of the beautiful game, and to change public perceptions of homelessness and the issues around it.
The Homeless World Cup operates through a network of more than 70 Member Countries across the globe to support soccer programs. It delivers an annual, world-class, international soccer tournament for national teams of men and women who are homeless or have experienced homelessness.
