ABOUT WORLD GAME – HISTORY OF WG
In June 2010, while traveling between four countries: first Korea, then Canada, France, and Serbia; the Football World Cup was happening on daily TV from Soweto, South Africa. Moving from country to country, I watched people gathering around televisions in restaurants and stores, and celebrating through the streets.

Then you have a great game!"..."Let's brainstorm," he suggested, and we made a pact to continue this conversation.
