We believe sport can help to shape a better future. As a reference to the yellow and the red card in the sporting world, the #WhiteCard invites not to punish but to create positive real change. We are starting a movement around the symbol of the #WhiteCard as a sign of commitment to peace efforts worldwide and where small actions make a difference. Raise it. Join us. Share it.
Behind each #WhiteCard, there is a story

Junior Nea Salamina FC Football player, Cyprus
Marios is a junior player for the Nea Salamina FC in Cyprus. He believes that sport helps breaking down barriers, preventing prejudice and creating a better world.
When I play football, I don't care where you came from, what you believe in, what colour you are or how old you are. That it is why when I raise my #Whitecard I think in a symbol that brings people together and that stands for the importance of respecting and enjoying the game.
