This summer, hundreds of millions of people around the world followed the twists and turns of two major football tournaments: the 2016 Copa América Centenario in the United States of America and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) European Championship 2016, hosted by France. It is a testament to the enduring power of the beautiful game that matches played at such venues as the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, and the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille were followed by fans from far beyond the Americas and Europe; people from all corners of the globe cheered on their favourite teams and players. Football crosses borders and continents like no other sport, and as such can be deployed as a significant force for change.
