  • Kickstarting Social Change Through Football in Brazil and Argentina

    New leaders are emerging in the soccer world of Brazil and Argentina who use football as a catalyst for social change and development. They parallel the achievements of Brazil's Seleção and La Albiceleste of Argentina—two of the most decorated teams in football history that have been represented over the years by some of the most dynamic and celebrated players ever to have worn their countries' colors.

    During the 2010 World Cup In South Africa, Brazil and Argentina hired Dunga and Diego Maradona, respectively, to manage their national teams. Despite their limited coaching experience, both managed to silence critics with successes on the pitch. Brazil entered the World Cup as the top ranked team and Argentina seemed to have found its form at just the right time.

     
    Soccer Tournament for Ending Gender Based Violence and Futbol Para Pensar are entries in Changing Lives Through Football, Changemakers and Nike's collaborative competition for using football to create social change. Finalists will be announced and voting begins on July 27, 2010. Winners are eligible to win a total of US $90,000 in prizes.
