Football for Peace (FfP) was established in 2006 by Chilean legend Elias Figueroa and co-founded internationally in 2013 by British South Asian international footballer, Kashif Siddiqi. FfP is a diplomatic sports movement backed by the United Nations Sport for Development and Peace that brings people together & creates understanding through the beautiful game. The charity has been active for over a decade building a unique platform of neutrality and has become a leading organisation in Football Diplomacy, gauging the interest and support of world leaders, footballing icons and Royal families from across the world including - HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, The Duke of Cambridge - Prince William, HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Pope Francis, Pele and Ronaldinho amongst the great names behind the movement. Ffp’s global work has been carried out through two core programs, Cities for Peace and Peace Matches, showcasing that football is uniquely placed to transcend the differences of nationality, ethnicity, religion, age and gender. By connecting people through football, they offer an alternative to division.
