How do sports cause social changes?

In what ways do sports serve as a powerful vehicle for social change, and how can athletes and sporting events continue to influence and inspire broader societal shifts, both locally and globally?

They could give youth hope so they can overcome rough circumstances.

I have read about a particular player, Didier Drogba, asking his people to stop war when they had a game. His plea was taken seriously as he was a legend for the Ivorian team and the war ended. Sports is a major factor to stopping some certain issues in the world.
 
I feel like sport can increase your mental health, so everyone would be a bit nicer to other person...the world would live in piece
 
I feel like they are on par with celebrities. A lot of money to invest into charities and a large voice to say things that many will hear. Some will make some differences and get small movements the ability to be large movements, but most will go as just voices that don't achieve very much.

They make a lot of money, and I honestly wish they make the right investments that will help society become a better place. I have seen those building schools and hospitals, and I hope more people get involved as well.
 
Imagine some Players get paid 10.000 for shooting a goal, as a bonus. Thats disgusting

That is one good thing I see in sports, a lot of the players have charities and fundraisers to help many different causes.

I hope that more players will key into the initiative. I like some African players are doing a lot for the people in their countries. It will help to eradicate poverty in those countries.

Yeah but we don't know what they do with the money. They might give it to charity or help with job creation.

There are people that say that these guys don't owe us anything. What do you have to say about such mindset?

They don't owe anyone anything, otherwise that would be an invasion of privacy, but it is cool when they choose to do good.

It’s not only sports we see this. There are bonuses in every professional field. It’s just a way of encouraging them to do more.

I think people that are not in sports are just worried about the big amount that those that are playing football or other sports earn for doing what they enjoy doing.

It seems like jealousy.
