CBF was nominated the most socially responsible organization in the 2018 World Cup. The majority of the Football For Friendship (F4F) members supported Brazil and considered it the most dedicated country following the nine values rules of the international social project. The Nine Values are: friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, traditions and honour. The Brazilian National Team won the award in Moscow, in the 2018 World Cup, and will receive the Nine Values Cup in the city of Porto, Portugal, on the next Saturday (23), at the Estádio do Dragão, where Brazil faces Panama in a Friendly game.

Organised by Gazprom, F4F has a purpose to cultivate in the younger generation important values and interest in a healthy lifestyle through football. The Brazilian National Team won this award based on the CBF initiatives and projects. That is the reason why Brazil stands out between the 211 participants countries.
