It's time to DO SOMETHING! STAND UP for fight against doping and help us SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT the importance of CLEAN SPORT!

What is Play True Day?

Play True Day is a day dedicated to the clean sport. The purpose of “Play True Day” is to acquaint athletes as well as entire sport public with global fight against doping. 



Doping is one of the biggest issues that sport is facing in the last decade. With Play True Day we would like to remind people about the moral inappropriateness of using doping and warn them about the dangers of doping.

Play true Day was originally initiated in 2013 by 17 South American countries, which, in cooperation with WADA and based on Montevideo Declaration, declared 10th of April as “Play True Day”. 

In the first few years, Pay True Day was celebrated only in South American countries, but in 2016, five European countries (Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Croatia and Malta) decided to enforce the Play True Day in Europe. In the scope of Erasmus+ project “Doping prevention through peer learning among youth” they carried out numerus prevention activities in the week before and/or after the 10th of April. Romania joined them as well. In the year 2017 we would like to bring in even more countries, national and international sport federations.

Outreach programs, interviews for media, (social) media campaign, photos of athletes playing true are some of the examples how you can celebrate Play True Day in your organisation. Stand up for what you believe and join us on the day that celebrates clean sport and clean athletes.

Clean sport is a global mission and Play True Day is an example how we can bring a fight for clean sport together in all countries and all sports of the world.
