About the Event
Social and physical distancing measures have disrupted sport and physical activity.
The cancellation of games impacts many social benefits of sport events, which can cement social cohesion, contribute to the social and emotional excitement of fans, as well as their identification with athletes leading to greater physical activity of individuals. Sport has long been considered a valuable tool for fostering communication and building bridges between communities and generations. The contribution sports make to the empowerment of women and of young people, individuals and communities, as well as to health, education and social inclusion, is unparalleled.
