More than a game - Football Including Refugees

More than a game - Football Including Refugees

Together, Sport and Citizenship and the Romanian Football Association are hosting a conference to promote initiatives using football for inclusion.


Thu, 12/12/2019 - 09:00 to Fri, 12/13/2019 - 12:45



Join us for our conference on Thursday 12 December in Bucharest, where we’ll be sharing knowledge, best practices and insights into how football can be utilised as a tool for social inclusion at a local level. You’ll maybe even get some new ideas that will inspire you to pursue your own local inclusion initiative for refugees, migrants and asylum-seekers!

The FIRE project strives to promote football as a medium of social inclusion, participation, socialisation and access to sport for asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants. Financed by the Erasmus + programme, FIRE’s main objective is to support grassroots football organisations and foster cross-sector partnerships between all involved sectors by creating a network for mutually enriching participants. We believe in fostering intercultural openness across European local football clubs and bodies, and further seek to empower, enable and support local football organisations to work with refugees and asylum-seekers through sport, and football.
