World Football Day celebrates “Football for the Goals”

Posted: Saturday, May 25, 2024. 8:33 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today is being recognized as the first ever World Football Day!

Football transcends boundaries to promote unity, solidarity & respect among all ages & cultures, the United Nations noted.

Sports have been instrumental in promoting peace globally and have played a pivotal role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Football is a universal language spoken by people of all ages, transcending national, cultural, and socio-economic boundaries.

This shared passion fosters a sense of community and national pride.

Moreover, football serves as a catalyst for social inclusion, fostering unity and breaking down barriers between diverse communities.

It provides a space where individuals from various backgrounds converge to promote mutual understanding, tolerance, respect, and solidarity.

“Football is the only sport where you put people together, it doesn’t matter if you are rich, or poor, or black, or white. It is one nation. This is the beauty of football.” – Pelé, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador

Football for the Goals is a United Nations initiative that provides a platform for the global football community to engage with and advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is an opportunity to build on football’s powerful and influential reach and to work together to become agents of change by aligning messaging, strategies and operations with the aspirations of the SDGs.

Happy World Football Day!
