The 17th edition of the Homeless World Cup will take place in Cardiff’s iconic Bute Park, right at the heart of the Welsh capital, from July 27 – August 3 2019.
More than 500 players representing over 50 countries will travel to Cardiff to attend the week-long festival of football, in what is to become one of the most inspiring Homeless World Cup tournaments yet.
Cardiff will welcome 64 teams from around the world. The Men’s/Mixed competition will welcome 48 teams competing for six separate trophies, while the Women’s competition will see 16 teams playing for two trophies. More than 500 players are expected to travel to the Welsh capital.
One of the most important components of the tournament is the referees! Without them, the games would not be able to go ahead.
Over many years and many international tournaments, the Homeless World Cup has gathered a dedicated group of international referees. Every year, they volunteer their time and skills to whistle with passion. Some are professional FIFA referees in their own countries, while others officiate as street football referees for various events.
Complementing these international referees are the ‘local’ referees and we are looking to recruit 12 referees from throughout Country to represent the FAW and Wales at the tournament.
