Homeless World Cup kicks off again

Twenty years ago, the whistle blew to begin a new tournament where the goals off the pitch were even more important than those on it. The Homeless World Cup became an annual competition bringing people who are experiencing homelessness together from countries across the globe to showcase how sport can be used to create community, bring inclusion, and be used as a vehicle for positive change. After a pandemic-related pause, it kicks off again this week, in the USA for the first time. Buy The Big Issue to find out more!
