/r/soccer is a community of passionate fans and students of the sport soccer around the world. Through the /r/soccer Let’s Go Play campaign, we are helping to bring the power of play to youth around the world.
We like to think that /r/soccer is about the most sensible, balanced, diverse, intelligent, and all around best place in the world for news and discussion about the game of Association Football in all its locations and forms.
Our community shows that it doesn’t matter if you grew up calling the sport soccer, football, fußbal, futebol, fútbol or calcio. The beautiful game brings people together, and when people come together for a common purpose, wonderful things can happen.
Sport has the power to bring communities together and create networks of people, and a network of committed individuals is among the greatest resources possible when it comes to local development.
A ball that keeps on being a ball is incredibly helpful in building teams that can tackle issues far more serious than how to win a game. A standard ball often fails within weeks in Nairobi or Kabul. The One World Futbol is designed to last for decades, anywhere.
All monies raised through the /r/soccer Let’s Go Play campaign on crowdtilt.com will be applied to purchase One World Futbols. All balls raised through the campaign will be distributed to One World Futbol Project partner organizations using the balls in programs around the world.
We can make a very real difference in the lives of very real people with something as simple as a ball that refuses to quit.
How big a difference can we make?
