Hope for the World Cup
With the final game of the "World Football Championship of Children from Care Homes" in Warsaw, Poland, at the end of June 2013, an exciting international competition for orphaned football fans came to a close. Since as far back as 2011, Continental has been the main sponsor of the football championships for the non-profit organization "Hope for the World Cup," founded in 2010. The goal is to use team sport to nurture the children's self-confidence and to encourage them not to lose sight of their plans and dreams for the future. Sport among kindred spirits from around the world is intended to pave the way to an easier start in adult life.
