Glasgow's 'Homeless Cup' bid

 
June 4th 2014
 

Glasgow is aiming to bid to host the Homeless World Cup, according to a document, put together by the city's football task force, which looks at how to make football more accessible and affordable for all.

The document, which was launched at the Tesco Bank Football Challenge National Festival by Glasgow City Council leader Archie Graham last month, also aims to boast performance in Glasgow.

"Football is part of Glasgow's DNA,” said Graham. "There are so many good things about football in Glasgow on which we can build and we have lots of dedicated individuals and clubs working at all levels who can help us achieve our aims."

Last month also saw the Scottish Homeless Cup kick off, with hundreds of players taking part in the Street Soccer Festival.

Former Rangers favourites Andy Goram and Mark Hateley, the team's current defender Steven Smith, and ex-Celtic and Scotland defender Tom Boyd all took part in the event, which featured regional men's and women’s teams from across Scotland.

The squad for the Homeless World Cup, which takes place in Chile in October, was also selected at the event.
