“Sport has become a world language, a common denominator that breaks down all the walls and the barriers.”
– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addressing the Sport for Peace and Development Forum, Geneva 2011.

“Sports has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where there once was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination,”
– Nelson Mandela

“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society

“Sports can unite a group of people from different backgrounds, all working together to achieve a common goal. And even if they fall short, sharing the jouney is an experience they’ll never forget. It can be teach some of the most fundamental and important human values; dedication, perseverance, hard work, and teamwork. It also teaches us how to handle our success and cope with our failure. So, perhaps the greatest glory of sport is that it teaches us so much about life itself.”
