Synthetic turf technology donated for 2015 Homeless World Cup


This month kicks off the 13th annual Homeless World Cup, where on September 12 individuals from various backgrounds, nationalities and interests will come together in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for eight days to share their love of soccer and support the tournament.

With Act Global set to be the official synthetic turf sponsor for the event, Bonar Yarns MN Ultra fibers are featured throughout the pitches donated by the FIFA-preferred producer. Encompassing a unique balance of durability, skin friendliness and resilience, MN Ultra fibers provide a top-of-the-range solution for the tournament – normally featured in FIFA 1 star- and 2 star-accredited pitches – making the latest synthetic turf technology central to the event.

The Homeless World Cup is on a mission to inspire life change through the power of soccer. Founded in 2001, the tournament and its partners now span 74 countries, and have impacted the lives of one million homeless people worldwide. It is estimated that 100 million people worldwide are homeless, with as many as one billion lacking access to suitable housing.
