Launch of the #Morethanfootball Action Week

A new annual event for members of the European football family to showcase the impact of their investment in community and social responsibility activities was launched last week in Lisbon.

On 21-22 March, the #Morethanfootball Action Week had its inauguration event at the 8th EFDN ‘More than Football’ conference at the stadium of SL Benfica in Lisbon. The Action week was kicked off by Hubert Rovers, CEO of the European Football for Development Network, together with Patrick Gasser, Senior CSR Manager at UEFA. 

The dynamics of the inauguration involved the release of the official #Morethanfootball Action Week video and the handing out of unique Action Week footballs, signed by the attending representative of the UEFA Foundation, delegates of the conference host SL Benfica and the EFDN board. The launch of the #Morethanfootball Action Week was also broadcasted on the #Morethanfootball Facebook site and can also still be watched there.  

The #MorethanFootball Action Week is a new European event for professional European football clubs, foundations, community trusts and their delivery organisations to showcase the impact of their investment in community and social responsibility activities and programmes on a local, national and international stage. This initiative, powered by EFDN and multiple football clubs, leagues and football associations across Europe will conduct this inaugural event from the 30.03.2017 until 09.04.2017.
