the third half experience is a journey of personal transformation

Soccer is often called ‘the world’s common language.’ It is played and watched by more people, in more countries than any other sport, from the mountains of Africa to the backstreets of Barcelona to the crowded urban favelas of Brazil. It has greater power to cross boundaries of race, culture, and religion than almost anything else.

the third half experience uses the medium of the game to take you on an educational journey that gives you a greater understanding of how the world works, the challenges it faces, and how we can solve them together as global citizens.
