Football gave me richness as a person

“Football has had a great and positive impact on my life since childhood. Along with the trainings and the physical part of the story, I traveled a lot, I saw various places all over Croatia and the world, I experienced beautiful moments and successes at various ages. Also, I met a lot of people, developed many friendships and got rich that way as a person. I think that’s exactly why football is ‘more than a game’.”

Renato Josipović, GNK Dinamo Zagreb Player

I encounter the fact that football is much more than a game literally every day

“I encounter the fact that football is much more than a game literally every day. Through training and socializing, children become better friends with each other, learn how to be better colleagues and athletes. We meet other teams and athletes at the same time, we develop new acquaintances and friendships. Through football, children are taught proper behavior, how to eat healthily and how to be positive. An indispensable part is also education on how to treat your parents, the elderly and the people around you, with respect and appreciation. Absolutely football for all of us is much more than a game.”

Marko Cindrić, GNK Dinamo Zagreb Youth Coach

It's the wealth that football provides, beyond the game

“Football plays a big role in people’s lives, in the form of discipline, responsibility and the development of other life values. Through coaching, football, matches and career development themselves, not everyone may one day become the most successful footballer. But they will certainly become successful people. They will be successful precisely because through football and sports they will develop values ​​that are vital. It’s the wealth that football provides, beyond the football game.”
