Football is not merely a sport of kicking a ball into another’s net. Being a sport that resonates globally, it is embedded close to global citizens.
As we have witnessed previously with The Elephants’ then captain, Didier Drogba halting an ongoing civil war in Ivory Coast ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, football acts as a peacemaker.
Thus, as we celebrate World Peace Day on the 21st of September, we wished to imbue the meaning of peace through an image of LaLiga’s fiercest rivals, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid C.F., coming hand in hand. Football connects as one.
