About us

The Johan Cruyff Foundation supports and develops impactful sports and play projects all around the world. We focus on children and youngsters for whom sport isn’t a guaranteed part of their lives. We put this into practice by sports projects for children with special needs, by setting up outdoor sports facilities in deprived areas and social sports programs. Through these actions we create space.

Space to grow. Space to make friends. Space to improve both their physical and mental health. Space to become who they are.

Unfortunately we have had to continue the mission without Johan Cruyff following his passing in 2016, but his vision remains the starting point for our activities, which have expanded considerably over the course of the years. Every week we are helping thousands of children all over the world to move up by being active.
