Nine clubs come together for the 3rd Community Champions League project meeting in Budapest on the 3rd and 4th of December. NAC Breda, Feyenoord, Aberdeen FC, Chelsea FC, Club Brugge, SV Werder Bremen, Vålerenga Fotball, Ferencvaros TC and SL Benfica are collaborating on the project and using the ‘Community Champions League’ methodology.
he Community Champions League is a social street football competition taking part in the local communities of each of the collaborating member clubs, involving children from the ages of 7 through to 15 but with a view to including the support of the whole neighbourhood. The teams play against other neighbourhood teams within their city but with the aim of promoting social integration through sport, the result of the street football matches will only count for one-third of the available competition points. The majority of the points being awarded on the basis of the teams, and their supporters, fair play, open-minded support of opponents and making positive contributions within their own communities.
The participating clubs share their first experiences, talk about challenges, discuss the finance and start to prepare the multiplier event in 2021.
