Das Race Goal, the world’s first entertainment and social investment platform that combines the physical aspects of traditional soccer and remote racing with the virtual world of gaming, will have its first edition on December 12th, 2021.
This first event supports the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), co-organizer of the event, with the goal of raising awareness and financial support for the Skills For Life programmes, aimed at empowering and expanding access to critical services like education and healthcare for youth, especially girls and young women, across Latin America and the Caribbean, in countries like the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Guatemala, Bolivia and Mexico.
Das Race Goal will premiere on Twitch via lvlglobal on December 12 at 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. PST / 7 p.m. CET hosted by Mónica Ferro, Chief of the Geneva Office at UNFPA.
Six teams of two players, each featuring an esports personality and a young gamer from Latin America and the Caribbean involved in UNFPA initiatives will compete in a real-life stadium at BMW Welt in Munich.
Using cutting-edge technology, custom-built cars will be remotely controlled via the Internet from all over the world. Players will be able to score goals, collect power-ups, and activate special effects in this futuristic gameplay.
Das Race Goal is a social impact platform created to align with the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This event is the first in an ongoing joint effort between UNFPA, Iconmobile, and Veritas Entertainment to bring awareness and funds to support the most left behind young people, to empower them to make informed choices about their bodies and lives and to participate in transforming their families, communities, societies, and economic systems.
During the streaming via Twitch, the audience will be able to make donations in real-time that will support the Skills For Life programs in Latin America and the Caribbean:
- Unidas Crecemos - México
- Abriendo Oportunidades - Guatemala
- Ñañangareko - Paraguay
- EscuelAfro - Latin America and the Caribbean
