At BabaGol, we believe football is more than just a sport. For us, football is a language and a culture.

We see football as society's face and character. We see the game as a path for education, and as a reflection of history. Geography and economics, demography and business, are all part of our point of view. We believe football is life, and on the same way, life is football.

Why do we do what we do? We believe football can bring people from all walks of life together. We believe in the power of football to shed light on deeper and wider phenomena. We believe football helps us connect with our roots and understand history. We believe football is the most beautiful and complex sport in the world, and we believe in using said sport as a lens, from which we understand the world around us.

We challenge the status quo by covering stories that wouldn't otherwise receive the attention they deserve. 

How do we do it? We focus on deeper understandings, and we focus on local issues. It is true we live in a global village, and it is also true that we each represent our home town.

We mix, doubt and test the definitions of MainstreamUndergroundPeriphery and Center, through footballing expressions.

What is BabaGol? BabaGol is a celebration of football and its variety of significance. We tell stories, analyze processes, share information, and promote the love and truth of this wonderful game and everything around it. 

Our Goal:

BabaGol is a home for football. Here we explore, discover, and shine light on football from all over the world. 

We aim to be a primary source of truly original football content, highlighting the connection between the game, local and national cultures, regional and global geopolitics, history and society. 

We are on a mission to bring you the best and most inspiring stories from around the globe, through our unique angles.

“Yo no soy más que un mendigo de buen fútbol. Voy por el mundo, sombrero en mano, y en los estadios suplico una linda jugadita por amor de Dios. Y cuando el buen fútbol ocurre, agradezco el milagro sin que me importe un rábano cuál es el club o el país que me lo ofrece”.
— Eduardo Galeano
