In an often divided world, sport is a unique and important connective tissue that binds people together, both across and within societies
For instance, Peter and Paul of defunct Psquare separated long time ago and no longer do music together. In fact they don’t wanna have anything to do with one another again perhaps forever.
But guess what? Their supports for Chelsea football club is unending till date. Think about it. A problem that ended their music career together, but couldn’t stop them from supporting same football club? Think about it again.
We must learn from the unifying power of these and other examples if we want to find ways to use sport to bridge the gaps that divide us.
