Homeless FA Women’s Football
There’s more interest than ever in women’s football, with the Women’s World Cup starting on Saturday – and for the first time all the matches will be broadcast by the BBC. That event happens every four years, like the men’s World Cup but there’s a less well known event, The Homeless World Cup that happens annually. It started in 2003 (men only) with a competition for women in 2008 and England first entering a women’s team in 2012. This year the event will be held in Amsterdam from 12th to the 19th of September. The vision of the Homeless World Cup is to use the power of football to transform the lives of homeless people – helping them gain confidence and qualifications – and there are now 70 countries running schemes. Jane Thurlow spoke to some of the women taking part in a six week training course at Manchester City’s Etihad training ground - Carrie, Saskia and Zoe – and one of their coaches, Becca.
