The Big Goal is simple...
To use the Global No.1 Sport and fuse it together with one of the largest Industry sectors in the UK to help tackle one of the largest social issues in the country: Youth Homelessness.
We want to end youth homelessness through the power of football – partnering with the largest industry sector in the UK: This is ‘THE BIG GOAL’
National 5-a-side Tournament
The Big Goal National 5-a-side football tournament will be initially played out in up to five Regional Finals across the country. These Regional tournaments will be 1-day playing events taking place between February to April 2024 at prestigious footballing locations nationwide. Underpinning the football tournaments will be the knowledge that every team taking part has exclusively sponsored a group of vulnerable and homeless young people to help these young lives turn their fortunes around for the better. Changing Lives through Football… All Regional Finalists will then be invited to take part in the National Finals in June 2024, to be played at the official and exclusive England training camp, St George’s Park: the Home of England Football, for the chance to be crowned The Big Goal National Champions!

Playing for Change
Fundamentally, the best bit about taking part in The Big Goal national football tournament is knowing when your team steps out onto the pitch, your team is PLAYING FOR CHANGE – knowing your team entry fee serves as a direct sponsorship of an Academy group of young people in your chosen local community. Helping disadvantaged local young people to transform their lives for the better.
