The fascination of football has many facets: superb moves, amazing goals, top-class players, exciting tackles and passionate fans. Football rouses emotions worldwide, it brings people of different cultures together and encourages fundamental virtues such as fairness, team spirit and tolerance. And we will be experiencing all this with particular intensity next summer – at the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany.
