As the world faces a pandemic that is affecting all of us, the Danone Nations Cup’s number one priority is to protect the health and safety of all tournament participants, parents, supporters, staff, volunteers, and partners.
After coordinating with relevant authorities at local and global levels, and in line with the World Health Organization’s recommendations and local regulations, we decided – for the first time in our 20 years history – to cancel the Danone Nations Cup World Final.
This was a difficult decision for us to make, considering that the Danone Nations Cup World Final has become one of the most anticipated annual events for millions of children and fans around the world.
More than ever, we remain committed to changing the game for children and staying connected to you! With our partners and ambassadors, we will continue promoting sport as a force for good and encouraging children to become agents of change in their communities. Our commitments include:
- Donating to the COMMON GOAL COVID-19 Response Fund to have an immediate impact on vulnerable communities around the world hit by the Coronavirus.
- Online communities that encourage kids to stay active and eat well by giving practical advice and fun challenges in partnership with DECATHLON® and its football brand, KIPSTA®.
- A partnership with the NGO Watering Minds, enabling 30,000 kids to access safe water in the aftermath of the crisis.
