The National Tournament of Slum Soccer is scheduled to be held in the capital city of Delhi, for the first time. The last edition of the tournament was held in Bangalore. It is interesting that the team to represent India at the Homeless Wolrd Cup will be handpicked from the participating teams, so the players will be only too keen to bring out their best in the fixtures, to make them eligible for the honour of representing the country.

This time round will be the 11th edition of such the tournament. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is sending in their team, and in total more than 16 teams are already in contention for the much acclaimed crown- the best slum soccer teams in the whole of India.

Even the mountain state of Sikkim has sent in a team to take part in the tournament; and it will be a proud moment for them and for Slum Soccer as well, we will be breaking new ground geographically speaking.
