Common Goal launches COVID-19 response fund

"I'm urging not only my Common Goal teammates, but all other players and football leaders from around the world to unite and help tackle this crisis."

Common Goal Co-founder Juan Mata Tweet

In light of the current crisis, Common Goal has established the Common Goal COVID19 Response Fund, offering its existing framework to football players, football industry leaders and any other private or public funder as well as individuals, who want to make an immediate impact to vulnerable communities around the world hit by the Coronavirus.  

To maximise the impact of the Fund, Common Goal will draw upon the streetfootballworld network of community organisations which can deliver essential support services in direct response to the Coronavirus pandemic to 200+ communities across 90 countries and to over 2 million people.  

The allocation of the Fund will not only look at tackling the immediate effects of the crisis but also ensure that support continues in the aftermath of the health crisis, with the special focus on disadvantaged young people in deprived communities and in humanitarian and conflict settings.
