Melbourne Victory Captain Kevin Muscat is one of the Hyundai A-League players who has been appointed as a UNICEF ambassador, and helped to spread the word about the importance of Universal Children-s Day today.

In 1954 the United Nations declared Universal Children's Day as a day to promote friendship and understanding among children of the world.

“Football has the power to unite children,” Muscat said.

“It-s a great way for kids to get active, keep healthy and most of all, have fun. And as football is a team sport, it provides kids with the opportunity to develop long lasting friendships,” he said.

Victory is encouraging boys and girls in Victoria to celebrate Universal Children-s Day to by playing a game of football with their friends.

And remember UNICEF relies on donations. Football fans are encouraged to give generously and support the UNICEF Australia projects by calling 1300 884 233.

UNICEF is the leading, effective global organisation working on development and emergency relief for children. UNICEF helps children survive and thrive by providing communities with essential medicines, vaccines, educational and emergency supplies.
