More than Football Award powered by Musco Lighting
The goal of the More than Football Award powered by Musco Lighting is to honour the best social initiatives in Europe delivered by a European Club, League or FA by celebrating the work they do on and off-pitch on a local, national and international levels. We will hand out the Award for the best project promoted during the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks (15.09. – 11.10.2020), which will be assessed not only on the quality of the project but also on the level of promotion and engagement.
The winner of the 2020 More than Football Award powered by Musco Lighting will not only receive recognition for having implemented the most innovative and impactful Community and Social Responsibility programme in European football, but they will also win a complete Mini-Pitch System™ modular sports solution. The club-branded mini-pitch will be developed in partnership between the winning organisation, EFDN and Musco.
