Match for Solidarity helps disabled children around the globe

On 21 April, UEFA and the United Nations Office at Geneva joined forces to stage the Match for Solidarity charity football match.

The match, held at the Stade de Genève in glorious sunshine, proved to be extremely popular, with 23,654 fans turning up to watch Figo’s team triumph 4–3 in an almost sold-out stadium. The overriding aim of the event was to promote peace, human rights and well-being across the world through the the Sustainable Development Goals as set out by the United Nations.
