Fruit of a historical generation of social inequalities, Brazil still carries with it a great burden of social injustice, which is not far from the reality of several children and adolescents in this country. It is understood that the period of childhood and adolescence is marked by profound discoveries and transformations, with their full experience of great importance, but it is known that many children and adolescents do not have due opportunities. Therefore, football as a national passion, is an alternative for the inclusion of children and adolescents, working on biopsychosocial aspects in search of promoting living opportunities for these individuals. Thus, the objective of this research is, through a literature review, to analyze and discuss football as a means of social inclusion for children and adolescents. For this purpose, Lilacs, Pub Med, Periodicals Capes and Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations were used as databases, and, through selection through inclusion and exclusion criteria, four articles were selected. Finally, it was possible to measure the importance of building social projects through football, which is an effective alternative for the social inclusion of children and adolescents.
