The IE Grassroot Soccer Cup brings students from top business schools around Europe together in the heart of Spain, celebrating their passion for football and contributing to the cause of stopping HIV spread.
Grassroot Soccer uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV.


Our vision of a world mobilized through soccer to create an AIDS free generation is being achieved by continuously improving our innovative HIV prevention and life-skills curriculum, share our program and concept effectively, and utilize the popularity of soccer to increase our impact.

“Grassroot Soccer’s work is a refreshing and highly promising effort that can help turn the tide against HIV. Soccer is like a universal language…Grassroot Soccer thus reaches large numbers of young people with HIV education, and bases its programs on the best available evidence.”

Helen Epstein, author, The Invisible Cure
