Professional football player Juan Mata chose us!

"Football is the strongest force that we have to bring people from the same and also different societies together because it already has such a strong following" - Juan Mata, midfielder for Manchester United FC.

With more than three billion fans, football is the largest social phenomenon on the planet. No other sport boasts such wealth. Or such reach. Or such cultural significance. The beautiful game is in a league of its own.

A few years back, Jürgen Griesbeck, founder of international network streetfootballworld, dared the world of football for peace: Imagine uniting the world of football behind a shared social vision. Imagine the impact we could create and the lives we could change. A few years later, his dreamed came true with the launch of Common Goal.

Common Goal is a charitable movement uniting the world of footballers behind the shared commitment to give back. The idea is simple. Players pledge a minimun of 1% of their wages to a collective fund. Juan Mata, midfielder for Manchester United, has been the first footballer to pledge his 1% and is calling for other players to do the same. Today, there are more than 40 players joining the movement!

We are proud to say that Juan Mata has chosen Fundación Tiempo de Juego as one of his top charities to donate his pledge. With him, we will be able to strenghten our programs that are working towards an equal treat to women in football, and better opportunities for girls to succeed in life no matter what their dream is. 

"Common Goal has kick-started an unstoppable movement from within the industry, through the players. Unstoppable, if we all together make it work. This is history in the making and we all have an active role to play. Your organisation is among the first cohort of Common Goal beneficiaries that will show the world how football can advance the Global Goals. You and your organisation will be the showcase and reference for everything that will follow." - Jürgen Griesbcke - Founder streetfootballworld

But Juan is not the only one supporting our organization. YOU have made a difference in the lives of children as well. Thank you for your continuous support. Without you, we would have never reched the high impact we have today on more than 5.000 children through arts and sports. 

Thank you for being our greatest fan!

With love, 

Your friends from Fundación Tiempo de Juego

Fundación Tiempo de Juego teaches children to believe in their dreams.

The magic of sports and arts for good is by now irrefutable, as decades of work across the globe being carried out by passionate people and organizations have been shared and amply documented. Thousands of lives and communities have been changed through the opportunities created by those working to engage with the sport they love to take its impact beyond the playing field. Fundación Tiempo de Juego has been committed to the cause since 2006 and, since then, been growing fast in terms of projects, beneficiaries, publicity, budget, team and achievements. We've benefited more than 10.000 children, adolescentes and families, have published pedagogical material, we've spread the word to thousands of readers and followers and nowadays we're helping smaller grassroots organizations to get stronger.

To support all these sports activities and help communicate our work, Fundación Tiempo de Juego has a Social Business called "Labzuca" which is an audiovisual studio that employs youth from the community. It has a team of 10 people, between Directors, Community Managers, filmmakers and artists, most of whom are participants in our training programs. Starting in February 2018, we have partnered with some of the biggest and most renowned magazines, newspapers and advertising agencies to support our programs and strengthen our participants' competences and skills. Labzuca is in charge of all internal and external communications of Tiempo de Juego, as well as selling their products to third parties. You can look at Labzuca's work here http://labzuca.org/ and here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkHD8NT4ZrNydgr3f_i4vog
