The Global Foundation for Peace through Soccer (“The Foundation”) is an international non-profit organization that is dedicated to spreading a message of peace through soccer. The Foundation is officially registered as a 501C3 “not-for-profit” organization in the United States. The Foundation operates throughout all of North America and around the globe.
The Foundation’s organizers have been involved in the sport of soccer for over 40 years in numerous countries around the globe. They recognize the very real and profound impact that soccer can have on people and communities around the world. If used properly, soccer can be used as a unifying force; it has been known to be a powerful tool to promote peace and understanding. Soccer is a true passion for the majority of the world’s population and tends to be used to create long lasting friendships and bonds that transcend political, economic, social, racial and religious boundaries. The mobilizing principal is then used to celebrate differences among cultures rather than to disparage and denigrate.
