Partnerships for the Goals

Once again, the GGWCup is built on the power of partnerships. We are uniting an educational institution with a soccer academy, adding the UN development programme, the government of Denmark and private sector sponsors.  In this way we are able to create an event, which truly reflects the many diverse agendas and forms of contribution associated with reaching the Global Goals. We look forward to hopefully give the players and fans a day full of inspiration and entertainment.
