Superstar Hrithik Roshan’s Indian Super League team, ISL FC Pune City, is attempting to break the internet as they get behind the #dizzygoals challenge in support of a major campaign to make the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development famous. 

ISL FC Pune City follow the "dizzy" footsteps of international football legends Real Madrid FC and Wales national football team's Midfielder Gareth Bale, Gary Lineker OBE, former England striker Alan Shearer OBE and Liverpool Football Club players Jordon Ibe and Joe Gomez and more recently Olympian Usain Bolt who have taken part in the challenge.  

The Global Goals are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030 and will be agreed by 193 world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly. Using the connection of ‘goals’, the dizzy goals challenge invites personalities and the public to run around a ball until they’re dizzy and then to try and score a goal.

In the video, Adrian Mutu, Didier Zokora and Yendrick Ruiz are seen missing their penalties for the dizzy goals challenge so that 193 Global Leaders signing the new Global Goals later this month wouldn’t miss theirs! 

They took the challenge whilst preparing for ISL Season 2 in Antalya, Turkey under the leadership of their head coach ex England International and Manchester City coach and former midfielder for Arsenal David Platt. 

Hrithik Roshan is an international champion for the Global Goals Campaign, which aims to make the Global Goals the most famous Goals on the planet by sharing them with 7 billion people in 7 days from the moment they are adopted on the 25th September 2015 (26th September - 2nd October). The more people that know about the Goals, the more people will work to ensure global leaders drive change and the more young people will be inspired to join a new generation of Global Citizens.

Hrithik also recently participated in a unique crowd-sourced film to promote the Global Goals to be launched on the Google Homepage on 25th September, alongside public figures such as Malala, Jennifer Lawrence and Stephen Hawkins. 

ISL FC Pune City's association with the Dizzy Goals campaign was facilitated by Exceed Entertainment, a multi-platform entertainment management company. The company manages and promotes the profile of Bollywood A-list celebrities and has also diversified into various other verticals, like Live Event Management, Sports Hospitality, Licensing and Merchandising, Digital Media, business ventures with artists, entertainment projects, brand marketing and brand consulting initiative.
