This guidance was developed through a collective effort by more than 30 leading child rights and sports experts from around the world.

The following are a series of questions, the answers for which are ‘indicators’ of the extent to which a city and/or municipality is child-friendly, and respects internationally recognized child rights. It is intended to guide a city and/or municipality's efforts as it bids and plans to host a Mega Sporting Event (MSE) like the 2026 FIFA Men’s World Cup. The indicators – the answers to the questions – can be used to measure progress before, during and after an MSE and are designed to be applicable to any country context and any sporting event.
