Top-flight European clubs are invited to submit proposals by 10 July to host the 11th Match against Poverty, organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and backed by UEFA.
This popular annual event is staged by the UNDP in partnership with UNDP goodwill ambassadors Ronaldo and Zinédine Zidane. The primary objective of the Match Against Poverty is to showcase the UNDP's Millennium Development Goals, to launch new partnerships in support of achieving these targets, and to mobilise resources to be used for projects that have a direct impact on poverty reduction.
The match also provides an opportunity for the host country – from its citizens, through its private sector, to the government – to unite in aid of solutions to global poverty.
Matches Against Poverty have so far taken place in Basle (December 2003), Madrid (December 2004), Dusseldorf (December 2005), Marseille (March 2007), Malaga (November 2007), Fez, Morocco (November 2008), Lisbon (January 2010), Athens (December 2010), Hamburg (December 2011) and Porto Alegre, Brazil (December 2012).
Call to proposals in English, French and Spanish
