The event is on until Sunday at George Square. A brilliant idea and great to have it in Glasgow. 

The 2016 Homeless World Cup Glasgow


The event will take place in George Square

Sunday, July 10, 2016 – Saturday, July 16, 2016.

Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, sent his greetings to everyone involved in the competition:

"The Homeless World Cup is a pioneering social movement that uses football to inspire and promote positive change in people's lives. Its growth since the first competition in 2003 is remarkable. The Homeless World Cup has impacted the lives of more than one million people around the world."

The square will be converted into an outdoor street football venue with three purpose built pitches with seating.

Fifty one countries will participate in the event and in total 512 players will arrive in Glasgow.

Entry is free.
