Quick Note

Just a quick note to prevent any confusion: I'm not associated with, nor am I trying to pass myself off as, World Cup Willie, the 1966 World Cup Mascot. He's much more popular and handsome than I could ever be. If you want to find out more about him click here

Corporate 5 a side challenge

17 April; Author: World Cup Willy

The Homeless World Cup Foundation is running a corporate 5 a side football competition this summer and you are welcome to enter a team. If you can’t make it, may be you know someone who can.

The event is being run at Soccerdome (formerly the David Beckham Academy) on 25th June and all money raised from this event will go to the Homeless World Cup bursary fund. Each team entered will represent one of the participating nations and the day will include food, drink, medals/trophies and entry into random lucky prize draws. Remember that over 70% of those who take part in The Homeless World Cup go on to develop positive futures for themselves – that’s 500 players from the flagship event and over 30,000 at grassroots level, so the charity’s work really does make a difference to so many people around the world.

What is this all about?

This is all about creating new futures for people ... through football. It's simple! And more than 500 people from across the world will have the opportunity by taking part in the 2010 Homeless World Cup. The event raises awareness of homelessness globally and drives people to change their lives with new health, jobs, homes, families and more. If you'd like to sponsor me, please click here.

Who am I?

I'm Wil, a football fan ... and now a volunteer at the 2010 Homeless World Cup. I've taken on the challenge of volunteering for the 2010 Homeless World Cup to combine my passion for football with a desire to help others. I'll be getting my hands dirty at the event, helping in a whole range of ways (lugging around equipment, directing teams, talking to the press, compiling results, writing blogs and more). It's a fantastic opportunity to get involved and to make a difference to so many other people's lives.
