We use football to inspire homeless people to change and improve their own lives.


Homeless World Cup is raising funds for Palestine to send a national football team to the 8th Rio 2010 Homeless World Cup for the first time. We'd love to see Palestine stand proud with 64 nations to be hosted by Brazil from 19 – 26 September 2010 at Copacabana Beach, Rio, Brazil.

Organised by the Palestinian Sport Office in Lebanon, The Palestine Homeless World Cup team will be selected on 25 August from homeless people living in the camps of Lebanon, due to conflict. Players will come from the refugee camps Rashdie, Albass, Al boorj el shamaly, Ain al hilwa, Borj al barajna, Sabra ana shatila, Al badawi and Balbak.

Please make a donation to support Team Palestine and ensure their participation in the Rio 2010 Homeless World Cup.

The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a unique, pioneering charity which uses football to inspire homeless people to change their own lives. We support grassroots football programmes and social enterprise development through a network of more than 70 Street Football Partners. We provide a focus for—and celebration of—their year-round activity by organising and delivering an annual, world-class, international football tournament for national teams of men and women who are homeless. Since 2001, we have been committed to “changing the lives of people who are homeless through football.” Today, the work of our movement is varied and extensive - from building awareness about homelessness and raising funds for our activities, to organising our annual Homeless World Cup tournament. The Homeless World Cup Tournament is our flagship event. Delivered by the Homeless World Cup Foundation in co-ordination with a Local Organising Committee, the event brings together teams from all around the world for an inspiring week-long festival of football. Participating teams are managed by our Street Football Partners and are formed by men and women all of whom have experienced homelessness.
