Creating awareness of charity projects through international sports tournaments
Sport & travel should be used to unite people of all colours, creeds and nationalities.
Football, rugby, cricket and the world's other popular team sports bring joy and friendship to fans from hundreds of countries, and also help local communities develop and build better futures through sports-inspired grass-roots projects.
Whilst travelling around the globe, enjoying the planet's major sports tournaments - such as the football and rugby World Cups - we often come across fantastic grass-roots projects. These local projects hugely improve the lives of individuals who have become the victims of poverty, abuse, crime and societal corruption.
More than a game believes that those of us who are priviliged enough to travel around the globe and attend the world's leading sports tournaments should put something back by actively publicising the grass-roots projects we discover along the way.
High quality Blogs, Photos, News & Videos from around the world
We hope that by appealing to a large audience, who enjoy our writing, images and films, and the latest news from these destinations, we will encourage you to Take an Active Interest in the projects we highlight along the way.
What you then decide to do is up to you but even if all you do is to click on the links to the Projects We Like & Support, at the very least, that will increase awareness of the good work being undertaken by these organisations and also encourage those that follow More than a game to think about and remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

The aim was to bring you one of the freshest, most original and informative accounts of both the 2011 Copa America and the 2011 Rugby World Cup that you could find anywhere on the Internet.
