"The reason for my devotion to soccer teams, symphony orchestras, and ballet companies is that these activities are a means to bring world peace. The world famous footballer and peace activist Pelé and I found that we shared this kind of thinking, and so we created a new competition of international dimensions called the Peace Cup, and tournaments have been held every two years since 2003. All profits from the tournaments are used to support soccer events for children and youth in developing countries. In particular, we use soccer to help children with physical disabilities keep their dreams alive." - Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, Founder, Universal Peace Federation
