Ferencvarosi TC Scored for Health on World Health Day
April 7 is World Health Day! On 7 April we called all clubs, leagues and FAs to highlight their health and well-being initiatives. We have gathered a few examples of how football organisations have implemented health and well-being programmes.
Sport has a role to play in achieving many different health objectives. Participation in physical activity can have a significant impact on the health of individuals and communities. The physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of sport are recognised (see the UNICEF & Barça Foundation ‘Getting into the Game: Understanding the Evidence for Child-Focused Sport for Development‘ report).
On this special occasion, Ferencvárosi Torna Club delivered Scoring for Health sessions for nearly 120 pupils of a primary school. The program aims to promote healthy lifestyles, healthy nutrition and regular physical activity for our young participants. The World Health Day is also a priority during the #morethanfootball campaign weeks, so the club was keen to highlight the importance of this initiative.
