FC Barcelona and Spirit of Football

FC Barcelona and Spirit of Football announced a joint initiative today. To kick it off, all the first-team players signed a ball called “The Barça Spirit Ball” — a replica of The Ball 2014 — which is on its way to Brazil, where the next FIFA World Cup will take place.

This special ball will visit more than 100 schools across Brazil, including schools in a number of favelas. An estimated 50,000 people, mostly children, will encounter it as they participate in workshops run by Spirit of Football.

Dani Alves: “It is our desire that this solidarity ball travels to schools and favelas of Brazil.”
Gerard Piqué: “Football is a great way to unite people and share our values”
Cesc Fàbregas: “For a better world. One Ball, One World.”
