VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- The Homeless World Cup in
soccer will be played next summer in Goteborg,
Sweden.

The tournament is organized by the International
Network of Streetpapers, and all players must be
homeless. Street papers are sold by the homeless
throughout the world as a way for them to earn money.

"Our hope is that an event like this will encourage
people to reflect upon serious social issues and
discuss social exclusion and homelessness from a new
perspective," said Lena Pettersson of Goteborg's Faktum
street paper.

The tournament will be held July 25-31, organizers of
the 2003 cup said. Last year's event was in Austria.
