The vision

Wether you call it soccer, football, futbol, futebol... we believe it is the world’s game. We see it as a powerful and yet very simple way to bring people from all social backgrounds and origins together, and foster friendship and brotherhood around the world.

Technology should allow us to share meaningful and real-life experiences together, and we want to do just that at Jogabo: help create moments of happiness and felicity around the ball.

|'jo, ga, bo|

Jogabo comes from the Portuguese phrase “Joga bonito” meaning “play beautiful”. It encapsulates the concept of returning soccer to its high and honorable state. Playing for the pure and simple enjoyment of the game with honor, pride, respect, and as a team.

The symbol

We needed an iconic symbol to represent the Jogabo movement and community. The circle traditionally symbolises unity and plenitude, where one is all and all is one. Free-flowing waves are harmoniously growing around the center and interconnected with the totality.

It is an ode to the wheel of life, with its perpetual movement of human cycles. It reminds of a ball that keeps rolling, an echo to our mantra, never stop playing.
