Our players today showed their support for Team India ahead of the Paris 2011 Homeless World Cup that kicks off this weekend.
The Club are sponsoring the Indian National Team at the tournament as a continuation of the Club’s relationship with Krida Vikas Sanstha Nagpur (KVSN) and their involvement in the management of Team India at previous Homeless World Cup football tournaments in Milan (2009) and Rio de Janeiro (2010).
The Homeless World Cup celebrates the year round work of its National Partners in an annual, international football tournament, which this year will be attended by 64 National Teams, including 16 in the Women’s Homeless World Cup. India will be represented by two teams (male and female) at the competition, both organised and managed by KVSN.
The partnership will see the Club financing the team’s involvement in the tournament. This year’s competition will take place on the Champs des Mars (Paris) from 21 to 28 August.
Since its conception KVSN has worked throughout India setting up the street soccer programme, Slum Soccer, in 2001 that aimed to provide sports facilities and competitions to engage and help homeless people living in poor conditions.
