Football is truly The World Game. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, young or old, rich or poor; whatever your colour, creed or background, we are all equal on the pitch. Football has the magical power to remove all boundaries, and that is exactly what Football United is all about.
Football United is a not-for-profit organization that helps refugees and migrants of all ages, as well as underprivileged and Indigenous Australian kids, through the game of football.
Since its creation in 2006, Football United has helped thousands of disadvantaged children and families integrate into society, build their self esteem and get fit in the process. It is entirely funded by donations and so, to continue this amazing work, we need YOUR help.
Your skills can help those less fortunate than yourself. Money raised by YOU will be used to buy boots, kit and balls, as well as to fund coaches, programs and transport. And with programs to help social inclusion, racial harmony and even teaching English, Football United proves that there is far more to the beautiful game than just kicking a ball around.
So, we at 1 Million Keep-Ups ask for your help to keep Football United alive and kicking. Simply donate a dollar for every keep-up you do, and get your friends and family do the same. Together we can help unite all football lovers and make a difference to people’s lives.
