As Football For Hope enters its final lap, we'd like to take a short breather and thank everyone who has helped along the way. In addition to the astounding generosity and commitment of FIFA and streetfootballworld, we couldn't have made it this far without the help of our fantastic Design Fellows, enthusiastic consultants, wise local contractors, volunteers and generous material donations. We are especially thankful to the consultants who have worked pro bono, dedicated so much to the mission and willing to donate their professional expertise to these incredible projects.

Read more to learn about some of the amazing participants that have contributed to the successful completion of so many of the Football for Hope Centers. With 11 projects behind us (shown below), and 9 more nearing completion, we're expecting the Football for Hope Program to open its last door by early 2014. Stay tuned for more ribbon cuttings over the next few months.
