Global Goal e.V. is a non-profit association founded in 2014 with the
Vision: To enable underprivileged children and adults all around the world to actively participate in sports by providing financial and non-financial support to build infrastructure and promote intercultural understanding through athletic activities.
Global Goal e.V. was founded and is led by 5 young and ambitious airline employees who share the enthusiasm for travelling and sports. It is a great privilege that our job enables us to travel around the world and to get an insight into different cultures and attitudes towards life. One thing we experienced on our journeys was that independent from the financial situation, living standards, culture background, religion or political situation, sports and especially football was a common trigger to bring a smile on the faces of the local people. Whether we played, watched or simply talked about it excitement always arose and happiness spread letting people forget about their circumstances and feel equal. Football creates a common platform to peacefully share views and experiences which is a very precious commodity in our times.
Driven by these experiences we decided to intensify our efforts to achieve our vision by founding a non-profit association.
We want to promote the thought that sport connects people and lead to a common understanding which in the end creates happiness. Hence, we founded the non-profit organization Global Goal e.V.
Our Goal is to organize sports events in order to connect open-minded people from all over the world, therefore enabling exchange and communication between different nations. With the generated profits we support organizations that share our vision.
By organizing and participating in international sports events we want to create awareness of the power of sport, enable friendships between people from different backgrounds and generate profits to provide the fascination of football to those who dream about it but need help achieving their dreams.
This year, our first project is organizing the World Aviation Football Cup 2014, a football tournament with 32 international teams from the aviation industry taking place from June 5th, 2014 to June 8th, 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany. In addition to the football competition, a great supporting program is set where the participants get to know each other, Frankfurt and have a good time.
We already gained very prominent support from Stefan Lauer, Former Chief Officer Corporate Human Resources of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, as our patron for the tournament, the BVB foundation “Leuchte auf”, Frankfurt Airport, Eintracht Frankfurt and the Leonardo Royal Hotel Frankfurt.
We are still looking for partners who share our vision and want to support the tournament as a sponsor or make a contribution to Global Goal e.V.
