CAPE TOWN – The Western Cape government officially bid farewell to the team that would represent South Africa at the 2019 FIFA World Cup for the homeless.

The 17th edition of the Homeless World Cup will take place from 27th July to 3rd August 2019 at the British Buke Park in Cardiff.

The annual tournament brings together street football programs from around the world, giving every player the opportunity to represent their respective nation with passion and pride.

The tournament is a celebration of the work of the Homeless World Cup Foundation and its national partners around the world to achieve their shared goal of creating a better future for homeless people through football.

The annual Homeless World Cup tournament has not only inspired vulnerable young people to make positive changes in their lives, but has also challenged the perception of homelessness and their public issues. By depicting the human side of homelessness, the Foundation should help reduce stereotypes and change the way the public thought and talked about homelessness.

Through community-based street football initiatives, the eight-member team was selected from across the country.

South Africa would be represented at the World Cup:

Sibusiso Joseph Dyantyi
Tankiso Vincent Lesia
Wade Samuels from Parkwood, Western Cape
Sinesipho Dayimani
Katleho Moses Molieana from Gugulethu, Western Cape
Lucky Tyokwana of New Crossroads, Western Cape
Sbonelo Ngubane
Yandisa Nomadluka
