A programme for young people - that helps develop their football skills and give them an international outlook - has broken the world record for most nationalities involved in a football training session.
"Football can make people happy, it can bring joy to communities,” says Sophie Folds, USA
“We should all learn to speak the language of football, because then we are able to communicate with each other no matter which nationality [we are].”
Friendship, fair play and dedication are some of the pillars on which Football for Friendship, an annual international programme for youths, is based. Hundreds of young people from all over the world come to participate in this event that seeks to promote core values of football.
Supported by UEFA, FIFA, the International Olympic Committee and many other key figures and organisations, the International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship (F4F) has been implemented by Gazprom since 2013.
Young Ambassadors from Gazprom’s International Children’s Social Programme, Football for Friendship, were at the Dragão stadium in Porto on Wednesday to present the award.
