Freedom From Drug Abuse is the Message of the Drug-Free Soccer Tournament
The sixth annual Drug-Free Tournament of Cagliari, Italy, promotes that when someone kicks drugs, everyone wins
CAGLIARI, Italy, July 15, 2019 (Newswire.com) - In Cagliari, the capital of the Italian island of Sardinia, four teams met on International Day Against Drug Abuse to promote drug-free living in a tournament promoting the drug prevention initiative of Foundation for a Drug-Free World.
Now in its sixth year, the tournament was organized by Foundation for a Drug-Free World Sardinia and was televised on Sardinia 1 TV.
The foundation promotes sports as a healthy alternative to drug abuse, saying “when someone kicks drugs, everyone wins.”
The event was made possible by the support of the Sardinian chapter of MSP Italia, a nonprofit association for the promotion of sports, and by the hospitality of Polisportiva Johannes, which made the playing field available.
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World team won the final match, beating a team of local TV journalists. Their victory this year was in no small measure thanks to the participation of former pro football (soccer) player Gianni Roccotelli.
Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a secular nonprofit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions to live drug-free. The Foundation’s Truth About Drugs campaign is the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention initiative.
