Impact of the HWC on our players

The Homeless World Cup is so much more than a football tournament. Its an opportunity for people from all over the world to rebuild their self belief and be inspired about the future. Our players were blown away by the experience and enjoyed every single minute. Even the chilly weather of Glasgow didn't bother them as they saw it as an opportunity to experience something new!

No one made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.
