Common Goal is a social impact movement that encourages professional football players, managers, officials and clubs to donate a minimum of 1% of their salary to football-based initiatives that drive progress towards the Global Goals.

The Common Goal Covid-19 Response Fund was launched to tackle the immediate effects of the pandemic, and also ensure that support continues beyond the initial response with a focus on young people in underserved communities and conflict settings.

The fund will use Common Goal’s existing network of community organisations which annually serves over 2 million vulnerable young people in 90 countries, enabling football industry leaders and the general public to make a positive impact on those affected by the Coronavirus.
