The 2017 Homeless World Cup commences on 29th August in Oslo, Norway. The team has been selected and are training hard to represent their country. This will be the 10th Homeless World Cup in a row that Cambodia have been represented. Last year in Glasgow, the team finished 33rd (from 48), taking out the Mens Globe Trophy, and Chan Minea won Best Male Player of the Tournament.
The players are great Ambassadors for Cambodia as most people that take part in or attend the Homeless World Cup have never met a Cambodian! People are always impressed with how friendly, humble and respectful our players are which is one of the reasons they are usually a fan favorite each year.
"Having attended the last nine Homeless World Cups with Cambodia, I know what a huge impact taking part has on the players. It's a massive honor for them and they come back different. Much more self-belief and pride. We are so proud that this is Cambodia's tenth HWC." Vibol Chao, HFCA Country Manager
