Let’s celebrate ‘25 years as One Play True Team’ 

Further to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) release of 23 February, WADA wishes to remind the global anti-doping community that Play True Day 2024 will be celebrated on 19 April 2024 and invite all to take part in the digital campaign aimed at raising awareness among athletes and everyone as to the importance of Clean Sport. 

WADA is proud to say that this year marks the tenth anniversary of the Play True Day campaign, which stems from a WADA-hosted Education Conference in South America; and that last year, achieved a potential social media reach(1) of 161 million worldwide and nearly 160,000 social media engagements(2)

WADA President Witold Bańka said: “WADA is doubly proud this year to be celebrating its 25th anniversary. Born out of an urgency to tackle the doping problem in sport, the Agency’s creation in 1999 activated the global collaborative movement for doping-free sport. Since then, athletes worldwide have benefited from the commitment of the global anti-doping community – past and present. Development of the global anti-doping system has been and will always be a true team effort. We have come a long way together and we must go further in raising the game for athletes worldwide, so please join us this Play True Day in celebrating ‘25 years as One Play True Team’!”
