Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. ... It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers.

About Our Society

Our Vision:

An inclusive world free of all types of discrimination.

Our Mission:

At One Team, we believe that soccer has an incredible power, which can be used to make this world a better place. Use this powerful platform to promote peace, equality, health, and education for everyone. Make the game better, take it to the world, and you will be fostering a better world.

We achieve this by:

  • Organizing an annual international soccer tournament that unites local teams from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds with international teams affected by war, poverty, and gender inequality to compete in an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent their country.
  • Supporting (through partnerships) grassroots soccer programs in nations and communities affected by war, poverty, and gender inequality.

Our Values:

  • Inclusion
  • Equality
  • Respect

Our Story:

One Team is a registered not-for-profit Canadian Society based in Vancouver, Canada. One Team was created to develop and support grassroots soccer programs in communities impacted by war, poverty, and gender inequality. Our mission is to promote global peace and social change through soccer. One Team was founded by social entrepreneur and award-winning humanitarian Adri Hamael. Adri has devoted his adult life to social change and global peace, and has a long history of creating projects and organizations focused on improving people's lives.

Why Soccer?

Soccer is the biggest game in the world. The game is watched and played by billions of people worldwide; therefore, it's a powerful medium for change and for making a difference. The game transcends borders and barriers, and is among the most powerful tools for creating awareness about issues of global interest.
