Mental Health World Cup 2021
This year we managed to raise £17,000 for mental health causes.
Due to the pandemic we have had to scale down the event this year with four teams taking part in an 11-a-side tournament between Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas. With over 70 footballers taking part, we had a phenomenal response in a short time to get on the pitch, play football and stand against suicide. Every penny of profit goes directly to the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and the QPR Community Trust and their work in suicide awareness, prevention and mental health services.
Stand against suicide.
The Mental Health World Cup at QPR's Loftus Road Stadium is the UK's leading charity 5-a-side football tournament for the fight to prevent male suicide. We raise vital funds and raise awareness for charity CALM and other mental health community initiatives,.
Launched in 2012, the #MHWC has become a key fundraising and social event for the construction industry, where suicide rates are three times higher than the UK average. It provides an opportunity to bring people together - friends, colleagues and business associates - to raise money and awareness for this critical issue, whilst giving everyone involved an incredible day to remember.
