The 2014 tournament took place in the vibrant city of Santiago, Chile. The 12th edition of the Homeless World Cup saw 100,000 spectators watch the action live from Plaza de Bulnes, where the host nation took both the men’s and women’s championships.
The Final Standings
A unique feature of the Homeless World Cup tournament is that regardless of ability, all teams compete for the same number of days. The competition breaks into a number of different trophies. Because of these levels of competitions, the games are exciting and meaningful even on the final day of the tournament. On the last day, each team earns their final position – and those standings then influence the rankings that will seed next year’s tournament.
