The “Football For A Better Chance” project has kicked off

On Thursday, 27th of August, at the Football House in Bucharest, the first meeting within the “Football For A Better Chance” project, financed by the European Commission and to be implemented by the Romanian Football Federation, took place in conditions of social distancing.

The 30-month project aims to promote social inclusion and combat the radicalization of young people aged 14 to 18. This will be achieved through football, the most popular sport in Romania, more precisely through the development of programs for different stages of training young athletes.

“Football For A Better Chance” will benefit from the expertise of sociologists from UNIMORE University in the Emilia-Romagna region, Italy, who will lay the foundations of a specific training that, later, football coaches in Romania will implement together with their own players. In total, 18 international specialists and experts will collaborate in the project, including eight RFF representatives.

In the final stage of the project, the knowledge and techniques acquired as a result of the research and implementation of trainings in Romania, will be applied in four other European countries, Ireland, Portugal, Greece and Lithuania.

The next steps in the implementation of the project will be discussed in a video conference, with the participation of all partners, scheduled for early September.
