The Homeless FA is proud to select and manage the Homeless Team England and be the designated national partner for the Homeless World Cup.
Every person experiencing homelessness has the chance to represent Homeless Team England. The squad, comprising of 20 male and 20 female players, is selected through the Homeless FA’s Training Centre programme, using inclusive assessment criteria. There is a particular focus on positive attitude, teamwork, commitment, interpersonal and organisational skills, and improved physical health.
During the Team England process we work with every player to create a bespoke personal development plan. These plans focus on the areas identified through the applications and Training Centres by the players themselves.
Homeless Team England is an affiliate partner of the FA and part of their Club England structure. As part of this official partnership, all Team England squad players are invited to train at the FA’s National Football Centre at St George’s Park. The Homeless FA has a partnership with Nike, the FA’s official kit partner.
