Teamwork and positive energy at Beyond Football

What can football achieve if we all work together? What are the criteria for successful partnerships? These were the two central questions at Beyond Football in Cape Town where South African football legend Lucas Radebe joined 100 representatives of NGOs, corporations, foundations, football institutions and governments for Beyond Football.

The event was held for the first time ahead of the Beyond Sport Summit to discuss football’s potential for social change. 

Beyond Football
Organised by Beyond Sport and streetfootballworld, with support from adidas and Impact International, the one-day event brought together 30 streetfootballworld network members as well as experts and stakeholders from around the world. 

Core programme
The core programme consisted of four case studies of successful partnerships, which were discussed by the participants in smaller groups.Topics included "International learning partnerships", "Regional capacity building", "From charity recipient to social enterprise" and "Successful partnerships with corporations."

The full outcomes of Beyond Football are currently being processed, and will be presented shortly in consolidated form.
