From 24 February to 17 March, FIFA.com Club members were asked to write and submit a true story about a person or organization that they believed was worthy of receiving a brand new Kia Soul for their efforts in trying to make a positive impact in their community through the power of football.

Along with potentially helping their person or organization of choice by submitting their story, contestants also had a chance to win something for taking the time to write and send in their power of football stories, namely, a trip to the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Rio de Janeiro on 13 July!

We have received so many touching and incredible stories. Thank you to all our Club members that answered the call. On 31 March FIFA.com will reveal the shortlist of entries for the Power of Football Presented by Kia contest as decided by a panel of FIFA.com experts. You will be able to read the shortlisted entries on the Power of Football Contest Page

Voting up next 
The shortlist will be opened for voting on 31 March. That’s right, FIFA.com users just like YOU will decide which entry deserves to win a trip for two people to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final in Rio de Janeiro and a brand-new Kia Soul! All FIFA.com Club members will be eligible to cast one vote for their favourite entry. You can only submit one vote so, once the shortlist is published, be sure to read each story carefully before voting.

The prizes
Along with the Grand Prize package of a Kia Soul and trip to the Final of Brazil 2014, we also have several runners-up prizes and a special community prize. All shortlisted names will receive a special prize package and one lucky voter will receive our Community Prize. All you have to do is cast your vote on 31 March and you could be our lucky Community Prize winner! View the Kia Contest Prizes page for more details.
