Today, we are pleased to announce the first clubs that will participate in the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks 2018. In the following weeks, we will communicate more participants that will join the event to showcase how the power of football changes peoples’ lives.

The Big Hearts Community Trust, Ferencvarosi FC, Legia Foundation, Greenock Morton and Apollon Limassol FC are the first five clubs that we would like to communicate.

Would you also like to sign up for the initiative that is supported by the European Football for Development Network (EFDN), the UEFA Foundation for Children and the ECA to highlight your work and to prove that football is being used as a valid tool for social development? Register now for the unique annual event.

The Date

This year’s #Morethanfootball Action Weeks will take place from 21st March to 8th April and we are very excited to host such an event. We strongly believe that football is much more than just a game and we would like to invite all European clubs, foundations, community trusts, players, Leagues and Football Associations to participate in our unique European-wide movement. We are excited to welcome all of the organisations that have the desire to go the extra mile and impact the society in a positive way. The start of the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks event is part of the launching of the 10th EFDN Anniversary Conference.

The Launch

The #Morethanfootball Action Weeks will be launched on 21st March at the 10th Anniversary EFDN Conference in Paris. The unique event will present numerous best practice programmes from clubs and organisations like Real Madrid, Chelsea FC, Paris Saint Germain, FIFA, Premier League, KNVB, and many others. Besides the football clubs and organisations, the 10th EFDN Anniversary Conference will be accompanied by guest speakers from the corporate world who are related to CSR and would like to share their thoughts on social responsibility and sustainability.
