RIASA Joins UN’s Football for the Goals Programme ⚽️🌍

We are thrilled to share a significant achievement with you all. Richmond International Academic and Soccer Academy (RIASA) has officially become a part of the United Nations’ Football for the Goals (FFTG) programme. This step underscores our ongoing commitment to using football as a force for positive change in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

🌟 Understanding Football for the Goals (FFTG) 🌟

Football for the Goals is an ambitious United Nations initiative that provides a powerful platform for the worldwide football community to connect with and advocate for the SDGs. By capitalizing on the immense influence of football, this initiative unites us as change agents, aligning our messaging, strategies, and operations with the aspirations of the SDGs.

This program serves as an inspiration and guide for every facet of the football world, including confederations, national associations, leagues, clubs, players’ associations, organized fan groups, media, and commercial partners. Its mission is to not only enhance existing sustainability efforts but also to implement strategies aligned with the SDGs, fostering tangible behavioural change.

πŸš€ RIASA’s Role as a Member πŸš€

Our membership in FFTG is not only an acknowledgment of our commitment but an opportunity to champion the SDGs during the Decade of Action (2020-2030). As members, we are poised to leverage our visibility, influence, and outreach capabilities through tournaments, players, corporate branding, media, and fan communities to raise awareness of the SDGs. By showcasing sustainable practices and advocating their integration into various business models, including sports, we intend to inspire others into meaningful action.

πŸ“œ Our membership package includes an acceptance letter from Mr. Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division at the United Nations Department of Global Communications. Alongside, we proudly hold Richmond International Academic and Soccer Academy’s Certificate of Membership, reflecting our dedication to advancing global progress through sports.

πŸ“Œ Our FFTG membership gives us access to a resource hub with key resources including videos, informative newsletters, and expert insights. This platform equips us to better contribute to the initiative’s objectives and offers opportunity to collaborate, through this initiative, in convenings, discussions and events alongside the FFTG membership of fellow football stakeholders.

🌐 Stay Informed: As FFTG gains momentum, we are committed to keeping you informed and engaged. We will regularly share fresh content including videos, newsletters, expert panels, and more. This partnership presents an exciting opportunity to collectively drive sustainable change through football. 

This achievement marks a significant step towards fostering global development through our shared passion for the game.
