Heal our Mothers of Earth through the Beautiful Game
WE ARE THE INTERSECTION OF WELL-BEING SCIENCE, HEALTHY ENVIRONMENTS, MOTHERHOOD AND FÚTBOL.
Fútbol is the greatest social force in humanity, and we are marrying it to the single greatest social need: our mothers healing and well-being. Fútbol clubs, fútbol communities, and fútbol infrastructure will be repurposed - for the first time - as a platform for the benefit of mothers with the world’s leading science, well being and healing tools and education services.

It's taken us 10 years of collaborating alongside experts from world class institutions to create a breakthrough solution for motherhood healing through futbol, and pioneer a new field of science for 'healthy mother environments'.
We’ve taken this enormous body of work and ecosystem and built the first bridge of motherhood science into futbol communities
Globally, there are 4,440 fútbol clubs, and the football community comprises nearly 4.5 Billion people with a total spend of $50 Billion on community well-being, making fútbol humanity’s most powerful social, community and cultural force. Yet, fútbol has never been leveraged for the benefit of our most valuable community, our mothers.
THE FIRST MOTHER OF FÚTBOL
King Pelé's Mother
Innovative new global project to start in Santos, Brazil, in honour of Pelé’s Mother, Dona Celeste Arantes, merging the world’s leading maternal science with the world’s leading fútbol communities.
The inaugural HOME program will be located in Pelé’s home and the spiritual birthplace of fútbol, and is named in honour of his mother, Dona Celeste. The project will launch in Santos in late January 2024.
As the world honours Pelé on his 83rd birthday – the first since his passing last December – FC Mother and the Pelé Foundation form a groundbreaking partnership to harness the power of fútbol communities to help address one of the most valuable public health issues – healing our mothers of the earth (H.O.M.E).

The First Well-Being Platform
designed to Heal our Mothers
through the Beautiful Game
sport club partnerships and HOME center locations in the next ten years.
Having secured the spiritual home of fútbol and successfully served mothers across Brazil through evidence base launch programs, FC Mother will expand globally – as well as into additional sports including the NBA, NFL, MLB, and the NHL, amongst others.
FC Mother’s model and growth ambitions are anchored upon our proven track record over the last decade. From 2013-2023, our sister company’s public health platform of wellness centers, WELL, has opened over 44,000+ wellness community locations in 125 countries and become the world’s largest provider of community wellness with over 3,800 enterprise partnerships.

Our frontier science presented here at the Vatican forum, Humanity 2.0 - alongside experts from Harvard, Delos, IHME, Commonsense Childbirth - explores the correlation between how environments can be optimized to improve prenatal wellness, postnatal healing, and human development, unlocking a profound new intergenerational formula for health and well being.
Our team's pioneering research quantified the value for the first time of unhealthy motherhood environments by using the world's largest real world health data set (IHME), and tracking a mother and child's health over their entire lifetime based on mom's environmental influences during pregnancy.
Our findings: 19 million years are lost to humanity every single year due to toxic maternal experiences and complications that go unhealed, proving 'healing motherhood' is humanity's single largest addressable and most valuable public health issue of our time. “
