The draw for the 13th Homeless World Cup was held yesterday in a packed room in the Amsterdam Arena, home of the Netherlands’ most successful football club, AFC Ajax.
With less than six weeks to go before the competition kicks off, Homeless World Cup President Mel Young pressed the button to decide the eight men’s and two women’s groups for the first stage of the tournament.
Check out the full groups below.
The annual Homeless World Cup began in 2001 after a late night conversation at the INSP conference in Cape Town. This year it will take place in Amsterdam from 12-19 September.
INSP remains proud of our strong links to the Homeless World Cup – a unique, pioneering social movement which uses football to inspire homeless people to change their own lives.
An amazing 94% of players consistently say that the Homeless World Cup has had a positive impact on them.
