At its best, sport is a safe space
where rich and poor, men and women,
all colours and creeds can meet.

3. People can be excluded by race,
gender
and economics.
Sport is for building
bridges - not walls.
‘During the game,
when you are out on the pitch,
you display beauty, generosity
and camaraderie.
If a match lacks these qualities
it loses force,
even if the team wins.’
Pope Francis
‘...because the language of sports is universal;
it extends across borders, language, race,
religion and ideology;
it possesses the capacity to unite people, together.’
Pope Francis
