Five women have come together with one goal, one dream. Coming from very different backgrounds in life they have to work together as a team if they want to do what no one from Scotland has ever done before. To win the Homeless World Cup, and bring the trophy home.

A joyful story of community and teamwork, building connections between each other and homelessness. Written with the Dundee Women’s Street Soccer Team, Same Team is an uplifting whirlwind through the highs and lows of homeless football. Come and have a kickabout!
