2006 Homeless World Cup

001_hwc_2005500_2
I’m not making this up – there really is a Homeless World Cup. Maybe you knew about it already, but it’s sure as hell news to me.

The 2006 Homeless World Cup will be held next month, in South Africa. Each team consists of four players, and each game lasts 14 minutes. I’m not sure how the participants arrange the air fare to South Africa – I guess the event is heavily subsidised/sponsored? Scotland’s team is sponsored by the Big Issue, according to Wikipedia.

Btw, Italy are favourites to retain the title they won in Princes’ Street Gardens, Edinburgh, in 2005.
