This July, hundreds of players representing over 70 countries will gather in Sacramento for the 2023 Homeless World Cup. Hosted by Sacramento State and Street Soccer USA, the tournament is a unique and pioneering tournament that uses soccer to inspire and demonstrate the power of sport in changing people’s lives.
Since 2003, the Homeless World Cup has been held all over the world to support and inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives; and change perceptions and attitudes towards people who are experiencing homelessness.
This year marks the tournament’s 20th anniversary and the first time that it is being held in the United States – as well as an official return-to-play after the COVID-19 pandemic.
To make this year’s an impactful and memorable experience for all, the Homeless World Cup Foundation, Street Soccer USA, and Sacramento State are calling on soccer lovers to serve as volunteers. There are a variety of positions available – from team guides to scorekeepers, communications and photography, and even team fans! All talents and skills are welcome.
