The places we play are theaters of self-expression; where we connect with ourselves, each other, and the world. Where we receive endless, simple gifts -- of friendship, health, and life lessons; a reminder that it’s good to be human; and a place to escape in times when it’s not. We believe that access to passion and an active lifestyle are the foundation for a positive and productive life.
love.fútbol exists as an effort to ensure every kid has a place to go for this feeling. To be lost in passion. To be grateful to this beautiful game.
love.fútbol is a global non-profit that engages and mobilizes communities to create, reclaim and redefine their own football pitches as sustainable platforms for social change.
We raise funds to finance raw materials, provide technical guidance and facilitate the execution of the project. Community members contribute with their talents, ideas, labor and other local resources, serving as partners and agents of change in the process.
A love.fútbol field is an achievable community-building venture and its success relies on the full engagement of the community.
Since 2006, love.fútbol has worked with communities from different backgrounds, languages, and cultures in rural and urban areas in Latin America, Asia and Africa.
We are a community of believers in the power of sport and self-expression to bring positive change.
