The boys take out the Mens Globe Trophy in Glasgow!

The 2016 Homeless World Cup took place in the heart of Glasgow, from July 10-16. For the duration of the seven day event, Glasgow’s George Square was “the most inspiring place on the planet.”

Cambodian team listen to national anthem before game

In total, 64 teams, representing 52 countries, came together to celebrate and highlight the year round life changing work of the Homeless World Cup National Partner network. Five hundred twelve players arrived in Glasgow each with their own story to tell, their own point on a journey to create a better life for themselves.

George Square was converted into an outdoor street football venue for the event, with three purpose built pitches with seating.
