To thwart the political recycling of the event stays the guideline
from which do not disengage the founders, even if the attempts do not miss. “One tried to instrument us, during the first edition of the Viva World Cup in 2005, planned in the Turkish republic of Cyprus the North. We cancelled the tournament. We are very sensitive on the subject. Since the politics or the religion override the football, we withdraw “. The only motivation of the N.F-Board stays that of the ball game. ” By playing football the purpose is not to change the geography of the planet, but to move closer to people when everything is made to separate them “. Actually the cultural dimension of the tournament of footballViva World Cup takes all its sense so much the wealth of the cultural diversity allows to generate exceptional intercultural meetings.
