The FACE Foundation, the French Football Academy and the Permanent Representation of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie to the United Nations have organized the first Francophone Cup, a soccer tournament in support of the French Heritage Language Program.
The Francophone Cup is a co-ed adult soccer tournament that gathered teams made up of employees of the United Nations, diplomatic missions, international corporations and non- governmental organizations (NGOs) to compete in support of the cultural, academic, and French language soccer after school initiatives of the French Heritage Language Program.
