Cooper Software is delighted to announce that the company has entered in to a three-year partnership with the Homeless World Cup Foundation to develop a digital competition management system which will reflect the unique nature of the Homeless World Cup. As part of the agreement, Cooper Software will also commit to provide staff to work alongside the Homeless World Cup Tournament delivery team during the event, as well as supporting the charity with any general technology and IT advisory support that might be required.  “Cooper Software’s expertise will be key in helping us deliver the best tournament to date,” said James McMeekin, Tournament Director at the Homeless World Cup Foundation. “We look forward to implementing this new competition management system.”  Commenting on the partnership Frank Cooper, Managing Director of Cooper Software said “The Homeless World Cup Foundation is an outstanding charity that is helping to change the perception of homelessness on a global scale all through the game of football. Football as a sport is very close to my heart and I had the pleasure to attend the Homeless World Cup in Glasgow two years ago where I was blown away by the sheer scale of the event, not to mention the incredible colour and enthusiasm of all the teams involved. It was quite simply inspirational and we are delighted to lend our support to such a fantastic charity through the development of the competition management system and are excited to watch the tournament unfold.”In addition to becoming Technology Partner of the Homeless World Cup Foundation, Cooper Software has also nominated them as their preferred charity partner for the next three years, and will continue to raise money for the Homeless World Cup Foundation during future corporate fundraising events.  This year’s tournament which will take place in Mexico City in November, will see teams form 47 nations across the globe, compete in a multi-stage tournament which emphasizes Fair Play and inclusiveness above all. More than 500 participants will gather in Mexico City’s iconic Zocalo for the inspirational week-long football festival.
