Notes: Soccer Movies about Dogs

Roux

In the following soccer movies and football films, dogs play major roles in the stories. Even though I am not a soccer-playing dog lover, I found the first 3 films to be entertaining, and the fourth film, Pups United, might be the best of the 4.

Update: I migrated this from a page to a post on sep-6-2016

Notes: Films about the Homeless World Cup

The following soccer movies and football films are all documentaries that show how sport can result in social change. The players are all homeless and join teams to try and qualify for the Homeless World Cup. The discipline of teamwork helps get some of the players off the street.

All of these films will make you think.

To learn about an organization making phenomenal progress working for social change in San Francisco through soccer, visit Bay Area Street Soccer USA. I sponsored my son’s team in their Jul-2016 tournament. We had great fun watching this 4v4 format on a hard court.
