  • Reading time:3 mins read

Hello Steelers,

Allow us to welcome you to the Afrigod Sport Sustainability League. For many years, the world has been experiencing an increase in global temperature which has led to more frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans; all of which has directly harm animals, destroy the places they live, and wreak havoc on people’s livelihoods and communities.

How quickly can we mitigate the climate crisis? Well, this is where ”Steelers” comes in. Sport organizations and their games attract millions and billions of people from across the world. A simple climate pledge, activity or action from any sport organization will have a positive significant impact to millions of people both on a local and international level which will greatly contribute towards a sustainable environment and clean climate. This is why we are hosting the Sustainability League, which is simply to help sport organizations like yours build a sustainability culture both in the clubs, fan-base and games.

You are special and the sport you do brings so much joy and excitement to millions of people across the world, but you can do more for our climate. We promise, it will be fun and exciting.

How it works

1.      A proposed sustainability pledge, activity or project by the sport team earns them a point (1 goal).

2.      Completing the pledge, activity or project earns the team 2 points (2 goals).

3.      Each sustainability pledge, activity or project should be made known to the public either by a press-release, blog post, articles or any other recognized public means (please share with us via sport@afrigod.com).

4.      All pledges, activity, or project should be completed within the period of the game (2 weeks).

5.      The team with the highest pledge, activity or project wins and proceeds to the next stage.

6.      The SS-League (Sustainability League) is simply here to assist in building a sustainability culture in every sport organization across the world.
