  3. 3. On behalf of Brazilian Association of Korfebol (ABRAKO), I am very grateful to be able to share this report with all Korfball lovers worldwide. It has been a hard work and sometimes it´s very tiring to make a giant nation like Brazil leaves, even for a few moments, the football-culture aside to try a new sport, with values as clear and as beautiful as those values who built Brazilian people: Union, Joy and Love. Brazilian people deserves to be able to figure out how to play Korfebol as well as met with himself in music, art and hospitality. There is nothing more perfect in the world than Brazilian people and Korfball. I have a dream, I live and fight for this dream every day and i´ll stay working on KORFEBOL it until soccer balls goes from men´s feet to the hands of men and women as BRASIL Korfball players. As I´m used to say: You have to want it!KORFEBOL Prof. Marcello Bepi SoaresBRASIL President of the Brazilian Association of Korfball - ABRAKO and representative of the IKF in Brazil
