FOOTBALL FOR ALL TOURNAMENT

Football is the most beloved game around the globe. It inspires teamwork, communication, camaraderie and respect, all in pursuit of a common goal.

On 20th March 2016, streetfootballworld and Zalando are taking the game to the next level with the Football for All Tournament. Kicking off a day of cross-cultural exchange, the tournament brings staff from Zalando and its partners together with players from the local refugee community for a friendly competition emphasizing teamwork and fair play, and creating connections across the field.

Football, music, food and activities to tire out the kids—it’s a perfect Sunday afternoon! With games being played simultaneously on four pitches, spectators can watch the action from the grandstand or test their own football skills for speed and accuracy. Visitors will also have the chance to find out more about how organisations here in Berlin are using football to help refugees integrate into German society and how sport can be an integral part of social development in communities around the world.

Football can change the world

All over the world, members of the streetfootballworld network are using football as a force for good in their communities.

For them, the beautiful game is not just a game. It’s how they're changing lives.

Whether providing landmine education in Cambodia or AIDS prevention in South Africa, from tackling unemployment in Brazil to integrating refugees in Germany, football is how these organisations get young people into social development programs—and keep them there.
