Team Korea is managed by the street paper Big Issue South Korea.
Organisation - Big Issue Korea
The Big Issue Korea initially started as an online community in 2008, launched by youngsters who have experienced about ‘The Big Issue’ from abroad. In October 2009, ‘Street Angels’, a NPO which supporting the homeless since 1997 in Seoul, joined the community. Finally, South Korea established The Big Issue Korea magazine as a social enterprise on July. 2010. Korean people lack awareness of homelessness. Therefore, there is a need to change their awareness for homeless people in South Korea. The futsal program is one of their activities and there is a mission to build a system to get off the street. First of all, the homeless need regular exercising for their own healthy life socially and physically as well. Also, they show to the public of Korea that they can play soccer like an ordinary person.
