During a meeting held at the House of European Football in Switzerland with co-founders of the ‘Common Goal’ project, Juan Mata, and Jürgen Griesbeck, UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin announced that he will devolve 1% of his salary to the Common Goal project.

“I firmly believe that football has the power to change the world. – stated Ceferin.

I was inspired by Juan Mata to join the Common Goal project. It’s nice to see a player who carries out such an initiative because the players have had a lot from football and in this way, they can give something back.”

Manchester United‘s star Mata expressed his happiness for Ceferin’s decision: “I sincerely thank Aleksander for his trust in Common Goal. I can only applaud his gesture and agree with his strong belief. Football can make the world a better place.

Common Goal was created by Streetfootballworld, an NGO that has developed a global network of over 120 charities that use football as a tool to fight social problems.
