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 by 17 South American countries, which, in cooperation with WADA and based on Montevideo Declaration, declared 10th of April as “Play True Day”. All countries in Caribbean RADO (15 all together) formally adopted the idea in 2015. In the scope of Erasmus+ project, five European countries (Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Croatia and Malta) decided to enforce the Play True Day in Europe in the year 2016 as well.
