There is a quiz, World Cup-song activity, videos, role play, performance poetry and group discussion, as well as a reflection on fair wages and ways of putting faith into action. In the 21st century, football is not only a sport, it is also an international multi-million dollar industry. It can give a sense of purpose and belonging, encourage fitness, teamwork and leadership, and most of all be fun! However, the beautiful game can also cause injustice. Explore both sides of this debate with your young people.

the FIFA World Cup, or an impromptu game on the streets, football has the power to instil confidence, hope, and pride in the underdog, and promote teamwork ... The game of football is a sport of simplicity and ﬁnesse. It has a global reach, it is gender-transcendent and can virtually be played anywhere. Whether at a large-scale sporting event like the FIFA World Cup, or an impromptu game on the streets, football has the power to instil conﬁdence, hope, and pride in the underdog, and promote teamwork and support.” Ban Ki-moon · UN Secretary-General “The driving force of our social engagement can and must be football itself. With its unique appeal and core values that reach across generations and cultures, football offers common ground for engaging in a wide range of social development activities, including education, health promotion, social integration and gender equity. That is why Football for Hope is of strategic importance to FIFA. Football is and needs to remain a school for life.” Joseph S. Blatter · FIFA President
The CIES Football Observatory is a unique project initiated in 2005 by Drs Raffaele Poli and Loïc Ravenel under the name of the Professional Football Players Observatory (PFPO). Since 2011 it is one of the cornerstones of the broader CIES Sports Observatory project, dedicated to the statistical analysis of sport in all its diversity. Two annual reports are published for football. In January, the Demographic Study presents an in-depth analysis of club composition and player characteristics in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member countries. In June, the Annual Review analyses clubs and players in the big-5 European leagues from a demographic, economic and pitch performance perspective. Methodological rigour coupled with a deep knowledge of football guarantee high quality analyses at competitive rates.

On November 20, 2009 Gary Brasher attempted to accomplish something that most of us would never even consider, much less aspire to, when he completes a triple-iron triathlon. That’s a full iron-distance triathlon every day for three consecutive days! He will swim, bike, and run his way over 422.6 miles in a 72-hour span! It is truly one of the most difficult sporting endeavors ever imagined. I can still remember my first triathlon. It was many years ago now, and it wasn’t anywhere near the iron distance. In fact, it was a ―sprint‖ triathlon: .5-mile swim, 16-mile bike and 5K run. And as you can imagine, the name ―sprint‖ indicates that you should basically be able to ―go all-out‖ in a race of that distance. But for me, my first race was a debacle. My goal was simply to finish. I had modestly trained for a few weeks and was pretty confident that I would be able to do it, but since it was all new to me, I really didn’t know for sure. As I prepared for the race, I remember asking a number of friends that were experienced in the sport for advice. They were all a tremendous help, but alongside their training tips and technical advice came one important message from a friend who said, ―Just run your race.‖ In essence, ―Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. Don’t get sucked in to the pace of the rest of the racers. Simply run your race.‖ I was impressed with the simplicity of the advice, especially since many of these friends had completed in iron-distance events. They knew that I would be tempted to give in to the competitive spirit even though I was not physically prepared to go all-out. They also knew that my adrenaline would be high and that my mental approach to the event would have to control my emotional response to the electric race environment.
More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed a machine so unique that it instantly attracted a devoted following around the world. Like its namesake, the Japanese peregrine falcon, Hayabusa is famed for cutting through the air with incredible agility and performance. It combines massive thrust, unmatched maneuverability, and a silky smooth ride on city streets or the open road. Beneath its windswept design beats the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa engine. The resonating feel of pure power evokes an attitude of bold authority from both machine and rider. Through countless engineering refinements of the original design, the Hayabusa spirit has endured. Its incomparable performance delivers a fun and sporty ride at any speed, setting the bar high for rivals and defining the “Ultimate Sport Bike.” The radically original yet timeless styling also reflects the spirit of the person who owns a Hayabusa. Suzuki engineered the Hayabusa to perform like a heavyweight boxer—muscular yet surprisingly agile. While riders rarely need to call on its full punch off the line, the overabundant power and fleet-footed performance inspire confidence in everyday riding. That restrained yet refined energy is the presence that turns heads when a Hayabusa and rider pass. Hayabusa is equally at home on the highway or city streets. The low center of gravity that lets it conquer winding roads also makes Hayabusa a nimble urban predator. Plus, the Hayabusa's high-quality finish and attention to detail betray unequalled pride of craftsmanship that will become your pride of ownership. The bold design also gives it a unique aura and formidable presence not found in other bikes. The 2013 model comes newly equipped with Brembo Monobloc high-performance calipers and an Antilock Brake System. These features are sure to appeal to lone riders cruising the highway as well as touring couples.
