• CAC, One World Futbol, ACER and Chevrolet Release a New Video!

    1011488_489932241089527_1366900936_nSeptember 30th 2013. Check out Coaches Across Continents brand new video which demonstrates the incredible potential for soccer, our programs and One World Futbol (OWF). This was filmed in July in Brazil with the ACER organisation which we worked with around the Confederations Cup. The new video was constructed by ESPN who are now running this as a commercial which illustrates the power of the global medium of soccer.  It shows how CAC, as a partner of OWF, are able to bring their ball to life using our games all over the world.

    OWF’s partnership with Chevrolet has allowed communities globally to gain access to their indestructible ball. This includes ACER in Sao Paulo, Brazil who work with street children addressing education, community development and social protection. The OWF allows ACER to run soccer programs using a ball which will not burst or fall apart on their dirt fields. Coaches Across Continents are able to work with the groups such as ACER and outline how to use the ball to teach key social messages. These partnerships involving many organisations and sectors are integral to the development of soccer for social impact for children all over the world.

  • One World Futbol and Coaches Across Continents Link Up

    March 7, 2013.  Coaches Across Continents have built our programming and partnering network around the basic idea that soccer is the world’s game, it can be used as a powerful teaching tool, and that soccer is the living extension of a community, city, and country.  Soccer serves as the link between people of all backgrounds, colors, religions, and creeds.  Soccer unites us all.   And now Coaches Across Continents has teamed up with One World Futbol who share our same beliefs.  OWF has a ball that never goes flat!  And they have partnered with CAC to ensure that their balls get to our partner sites – but we need your help to make it happen!  Watch the video take action below!

    You can join our collective movement and help us bring a One World Futbol to all of the people in our programs by doing two things:

    1)   “Like” Coaches Across Continents on Facebook. For every “Like” we get on Facebook One World Futbol will donate a ball to a person in our program. And with new programs and people being reached every month, we cant get enough “Like’s”!

    2)   Purchase a One World Futbol and select Coaches Across Continents as the partner organization of your choice.  For every One World Futbol that is purchased another One World Futbol is donated to a community in need through organizations working in disadvantaged communities. We would be proud to be the organization that you choose to help transform a community through the ball that you have purchased.

    Soccer has naturally paved the path for global changes to be possible. By working together we can walk down the path and make the changes positive and sustainable.
