Common Goal is a pledge-based philanthropic movement that exists to unite the football community in tackling the biggest challenges of our times. To do so, Common Goal provides a mechanism for professional football players, managers, officials, clubs, and other stakeholders, to pledge a minimum of 1% of their earnings to high-impact initiatives that use the game to drive progress towards the Global Goals.
Spirit of Football is part of Common Goal’s community of organisations working through football to advance social and environmental justice worldwide. Common Goal enables linkages between SOF and the CG community to exchange on and host The Ball on its journey to Australia and New Zealand through strategic support and facilitation. Specific components of The Ball project are also being synergised with efforts done by the CG Climate Action Group to ensure that impact is maximised through collaborative action. We are delighted to support Spirit on their positive action for the Climate.
