In a world where football seems to be all about money, partisan hatred and the politics of the sport, it's important to remember why we all fell in love with the beautiful game. Kauri Multimedia have made what they call, 'a personal and original short film telling the story of a 69 year-old referee who continues to referee Sunday league games after a life dedicated to football.'

The referee is Francisco López and he's amazing. Check out the film and make a wish that you're still going strong at his age.
