The Scottish team have put the final touches to their preparations for a record third win, having claimed the title of World Champions in Denmark in 2007 and France in 2011.

The squad, which is managed and coached by social enterprise Street Soccer Scotland, headed to Poznan in Poland at the weekend to compete in the international tournament which has attracted nearly 50 countries from around the world.


Sponsored by Quality Meat Scotland, the team will feature Scotch Beef-branded shirts.

Ally Dawson, team manager and ex Rangers and Scotland player, said: ‘Scotland teams have always performed well in past Homeless World cup tournaments and we’re hoping that will continue this year, too.

‘We’ve won it twice in the last six years and the players are absolutely determined to try and become the first nation to win it for the third time.


‘I know every one of them is proud to be selected and to pull on the blue shirt.’


Carol McLaren from Quality Meat Scotland said: ‘As part of our support of Street Soccer Scotland’s Challenge Series this year we’ve been encouraging players to recognise the importance of a healthy diet to their performance on the field and we’re delighted to be extending our support to the Homeless World Cup. We’re proud to be backing the team in their quest to win the tournament again.’


The Street Soccer Challenge Series is the biggest event series ever run by Street Soccer Scotland that unites teams and players from across Scotland through regular five-a-side tournaments and access to information on health, personal development and employment & training.

The tournament culminates on 18th August.
