Why football?

Football helps people to get through difficult times

Football promotes physical and mental health and teaches fairness, tolerance, respect and discipline. It, therefore, strengthens both self-esteem and self-confidence and thus helps people to get through difficult times – and at the same time, to develop new possibilities for their own futures. 

Football is a key element to achieving our goals

Sport transcends linguistic, social and cultural barriers and brings people together, irrespective of their age, sex, origin or disability. The positive aspects of play, sport and exercise can be perfectly applied and used to support social projects. Accordingly, football, with its enormous power, is ideally suited to making a lasting improvement to the lives of children and young people. It, therefore, serves as a key element to achieving our goals.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”

Nelson Mandela
