The Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA) is pleased to announce plans for a collaboration with Goal Click during the 2018 Paddy Power World Football Cup.
Goal Click is a global media and photography project, helping people understand each other through football. Goal Click’s major project finds people from every country in the world (currently over 80) to tell stories that symbolise their country through football – all using one disposable analogue camera.
During the 2018 Paddy Power World Football Cup, Goal Click will provide an analogue camera to several teams to document their journey through the tournament. Goal Click will then provide numerous teams with a camera following the event to take back to their homelands. Goal Click is already partnering with CONIFA member South Ossetia, with CONIFA General Secretary Sascha Düerkop delivered a camera to the national team of the partially-recognised state in the Caucasus on a recent official visit.
CONIFA is an international football federation for teams outside of FIFA, with members including states, de facto states, regions, minority groups and sports-isolated territories. CONIFA is a non-profit organisation registered in Sweden.
Goal Click can be found on Instagram (@goalclick) and Twitter (@Goal_Click). Some of its projects so far include civil war amputees in Sierra Leone, Kurdish football on the border with Islamic State, Rwandan Genocide survivors, Serbian ultras, Mexican police, bukatsu sports clubs in Japan and football in the Ural Mountains of Russia. Goal Click hosted its first exhibition in London during UEFA Euro 2016 in partnership with adidas.
