2015 Homeless World Cup Round-Up

The 2015 Homeless World Cup, held in Amsterdam, has now finished. In this blog, I round up the results of the tournament over the week of football.

It began with the First Stage, with the sixteen teams split into two groups, with a single round-robin played. The top four sides in each group would compete for the Women’s Homeless World Cup, whilst the bottom four teams would go on to compete for the Women’s Plate.

Rules

These are the rules used in the Homeless World Cup:

  • The matches are 4-a-side, with two halves of seven minutes and a minute long half-time break
  • Each team consists of 8 players: obviously only four on the court at the time, including the designated goalkeeper
  • Women can play in the men’s teams, but that stops them competing in the Women’s Tournament
  • In the group stages, the winning side gets 3 points, the losing team none
  • If, at full time, the scores are tied, then a penalty shootout is used. The team that wins gets 2 points, whilst the team who loses gets only 1
  • The pitch is 22m long, 16m wide.
  • The goal is 4m wide and 1.3m tall
  • The penalty area is a 4m half-circle
  • They use a Size Five ball

First Stage: Group A

Group A includes Scotland and Wales and below is the final group standings and results.
