Football can be played by everyone regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnic or social background and level of fitness.

2. …and can be played everywhere and anywhere.

FIFA’s Grassroots Programme brings football to children aged six to 12 all over the world.

3. Football is a school of life…

Fair play, team spirit and camaraderie are just a few of the many values advocated by football.

To have fun is the most important thing in football. The Football game and not winning at all costs is at the center.
