The Homeless World Cup in street soccer was held in July of 2003 in Graz, Austria. 18 teams took part including homeless from Poland, the U.K., the United States, Russia, Brasil, South Africa. The objective of the tournament is to change social attitude towards homelessness. However, for the participants it's also a chance of gaining self-respect. In ordinary life they are often losers without home and job, but with many problems like alcoholism, drugs, crime. Now they get the opportunity to turn into winners, and perheps even the world champions.
