Team PlayerData is excited to be supporting the first ever Spanish Homeless World Cup event this coming weekend, Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th Nov'22. The two-day Street Football tournament will be held in the city of Fuenlabrada, Madrid where we look forward to cheering on seven European Homeless World Cup Member Countries competing in a round-robin tournament on the Saturday ahead of a Finals Day on the Sunday.
PlayerData is proud to be the Official Data Partner of the Homeless World Cup. Since the 2018 Homeless World Cup in Mexico, PlayerData has been providing GPS tracking and analysis to their events across the world.
Our mission is to revolutionise the way athletes train and bridge the gap between grassroots and professional level sport, while building a community for athletes from all backgrounds and corners of the globe to come together with their shared passion.
With the Homeless World Cup we are embracing this mission and our love of community by harnessing the power of data to increase awareness and engagement as well as empower world-class street soccer athletes.
Mel Young, President and Co-Founder of the Homeless World Cup Foundation, said:
"PlayerData have supported us at two previous Homeless World Cups (Mexico 2018 and Cardiff 2019) so we are delighted to be working with them in Fuenlabrada. Their units and data collected over the two days will support managers and players alike in multiple areas including workload and performance, match and individual analysis and development of ideas and formations. PlayerData GPS technology provides invaluable insight and will continue to be a welcome addition to our member countries and tournament offering."
Beth Gray, Chief Operating Officer at PlayerData, commented on the special two-day event:
“This is an incredible opportunity for PlayerData to get involved and support an event that means so much to us. We have been working with the Homeless World Cup team since 2018 and are delighted at the opportunity to further our partnership with them at this event. We are really excited to be attending a smaller and more intimate event where we can really spend time with each team and get them some invaluable data!”
