UNICEF’s partnerships with the world of sport are based on recognition of the undeniable power of sport to connect with children and adults throughout the world. UNICEF works closely with national and international sport federations, sport organizations, non-governmental associations and the media to support children’s right to play, to deliver important messages, mobilize communities and, most important, ensure the long-term development of children, families and communities.
