Street paper vendors among hundreds of Homeless World Cup players heading to Glasgow

 INSP 04 July 2019

Street paper vendors are among the hundreds of players heading to Glasgow this week to take part in the Homeless World Cup 2016. The Homeless World Cup was first dreamed up at an INSP summit – and the links between the street paper movement and street soccer remain strong. Swiss street paper Surprise, Greece’s Shedia, German paper BISS, Ireland’s Big Issue and The Big Issue Australia are among the many street paper organisations that are sending teams. “I am very proud that I can participate,” said 57-year-old Surprise vendor Ruedi Kälin. (794 Words) - By Laura Kelly
