Above all things, what Palestinians love the most is their homeland. A land that suffers every day, facing a hard reality, but in that land there are also hundreds of football fields, where the joy of football is always alive.
'Our field, our land' is a campaign that aims to make millions around the world feel Palestino's field as their own.
To achieve this, we will gather soil from football fields around Palestine, which will travel more than 13.000 kilometers to the Municipal de la Cisterna stadium in Chile.
With this soil we will seed our field to turn it to millions of palestines own field.
