"More than 256 Million People are playing football in more than 325,000 Clubs worldwide. This does not reflect the actual numbers, as there are millions of children, playing football informally everyday."
- FIFA Big Count

Our Challenge

385 Million Children

Worldwide are suffering from extreme poverty. One of the resulting restrictions for children lies in the limited access to football clubs, due to insufficient financial possibilities to purchase basic sports equipment, or the lack of respective infrastructure.

The access to football clubs can be crucial for children to gain important life skills such as teamwork, confidence, discipline and mental strength.

Even though more than 325.000

Football clubs are officially registered worldwide, the majority is playing football in informal set-ups, as clubs are lacking the financial resources to accommodate all children and provide sufficient equipment. Based on online interviews, this is especially true in developing countries. Without the necessary funds to provide the basic equipment and infrastructure, clubs cannot act as safe haven for children’s personal development.

Added Value

Club2Club Partnerships

We connect two football clubs from different economic backgrounds. Club A has the financial means and good intention to support Club B, which is under-financed and under-equipped. The goal of these partnerships is to support Club B in improving their club structure. With an improved structure, more children can participate in Club B and are not excluded anymore. GOODGAME‘s role is to match these clubs with each other and to take care of every single step while setting up the partnership.
