Initiative Goal/Homeless World Cup Austria
Initiative Goal work in partnership with organisations across Austria to build a network of social street football projects. Their aim is to promote social inclusion through sport.
They offer support for people who are experiencing homelessness, or have done so in the past year. They also reach out for street vendors, asylum seekers, refugees and people affected by substance abuse.
Their men’s/mixed team is coached by Gilbert Prilasnig, former Austrian International, while their women’s team is coached by Emily Cancienne, who represented Sturm Graz in the Austrian League, and UEFA women’s champions league.
