Homeless World Cup 2019

Homeless World Cup 2019


The Homeless World Cup is a week-long football festival created to harness the power of sport in transforming the lives of people experiencing homelessness and social exclusion. This year, the annual tournament will be taking place in Cardiff’s Bute Park, which lies in the heart of the city, behind Cardiff Castle.

More than 500 players representing 48 countries will travel to Cardiff to play in the tournament, which takes place from July 27th – August 3rd. Entry to the event is free and open to all.

With homelessness at its worst point in decades in Cardiff, across Wales and the UK, the tournament is working to create a lasting legacy which has a real impact on people’s lives. Over one million people worldwide have had their lives positively impacted by the tournament and its programmes since the first tournament in Graz, Austria in 2003.
