Cruyff Foundation

The Johan Cruyff Foundation supports and develops social transformation projects through sport for children and young people with special needs in more than twenty countries.

Sport and play are an important part of a child’s healthy and appropriate development. Based on this vision, Johan Cruyff started the Cruyff Foundation more than 25 years ago. Sport improves the physical condition of children and young people, teaches them to interact and helps them in their personal development.


Through adapted sports programs for children with a disability and social transformation projects, the Cruyff Foundation creates space for all children with the aim of enabling them to practice sport and exercise.
