One thing to have survived through difficult times is the Iraqi people’s love of football. By giving them the chance to play again, we’ll allow a vital element of normal life to resume. Men, women and children will enjoy all the good things that come from the beautiful game. Teamwork, a good run out, a laugh with their mates and something to feel proud of.
The Football Association, Burnley Football Club and Manchester City Football Club are already behind the Footie 4 Iraq initiative organised by CARE International.
Do Something For Iraqi Football – join in the five-a-side competition, donate a shirt or enter the auction.
