Friendly Football Match in Haiti

Friendly Football Match in Haiti

A recent example of using sport as a diplomatic tool comes from Haiti where a football match was held between the team of the President of the Republic and that of the United Nations for Stabilisation in Haiti (MINUSTAH). The aim of the event was to promote peace and bring the community together while showing the country’s participation with the international community. It was important to highlight Haiti’s partnership with the UN as they are working in tandem to promote stability and order within the country. The match was successful as it attracted media attention and brought people together creating a sense of cohesion in a country trying to rebuild itself.
