WHY KIPSTA?

Founded in 1998, Kipsta is an amalgam of two words: KIP for "équipe" ("team" in French) and STA for "stadium".

FOOTBALL MOVES AND INSPIRES ME

because it is one of the most played sports in the world. It is popular, universal, intergenerational, exciting and brings people together. It is one of the few sports that can trigger emotions on an individual and group level and even has the power to inspire national fervour. It is also a sport that can teach and promote values such as working together as a team and perseverance, and can help develop technical, physical, psychological and mental skills." Frédéric Boistard, Football Leader
