The Homeless World Cup is delighted to announce that the 2023 annual tournament will be held in Sacramento, USA. The Homeless World Cup will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year and it will be the first time that the tournament has been held in the USA.

California State University, Sacramento and national non-profit, Street Soccer USA, will host the tournament in July 2023 with the action taking place on campus at the iconic Hornet Stadium.

As Brazil woke up to its first day without footballing legend Pelé, his face shone on buildings across the South American nation and landmarks were lit up and fans took to the streets dressed in his iconic number 10 shirt in his memory.

With front pages in the country all talking about Pelé, the country’s government declared three days of national mourning.

The announcement that Brazilian, and world, football legend, Pele has died, has left a numbness that will be felt by people – in and out of the game – for generations to come.

Credited with scoring a world record 1,281 goals in 1,363 appearances during a 21-year career, including 77 goals in 92 matches for his country, he will always be ‘the greatest’, because he was the ‘first’.

According to a statement from the hospital where the 82-year-old Brazil legend is being treated, the world’s greatest ever footballer, Pele, is set to spend Christmas in hospital after medical reports showed that his cancer has worsened.

The three-times World Cup winner was hospitalized in November for doctors to re-evaluate his treatment. The Brazilian icon has been battling colon cancer since September 2021
