The European Football for Development Network (EFDN) is a not-for-profit organisation that supports our 32 members of professional football clubs who are convinced of the social power of football and want to cooperate on a European level. The aim of our network is to promote the connecting power of football as a tool for social development.

Community and Social Responsibility is becoming more and more important in European Club Football and has evolved into a strategic tool for clubs to demonstrate their accountability and commitment to society, and to protect their reputation, develop brand loyalty and foster competitive advantage. In cooperation with governing football bodies and more than 40 European football clubs, the EFDN will bring together practitioners, project leaders and decision makers from community engaged clubs to debate, explore and understand new initiatives and best practices.

Topics for discussion include community involvement, environmental awareness, educational and health initiatives, cultural understanding and integration, stadium accessibility and sustainability, community based fan engagement and much more.

The conference can only be attended by representatives of professional football clubs or their community foundations.

Publiée en partenariat avec l'association suisse des services des sports et des fédérations LGBT, la publication "Carton rouge contre l'homophobie dans le sport !" se veut être une "notice pour les coachs et les dirigeants". 


Assez courte, cette dernière définit d'abord l'homophobie par des exemples d'insultes ou de clichés qu'on peut souvent entendre. "Elle court comme une gouine" ou "Fais pas la tapette, allez, ça fait pas mal !" figurent ainsi parmi les quelques exemples relevés. 

Les auteurs indiquent ensuite "que faire en tant que coach", insistant sur le rôle d'écoute et de prévention de cet acteur essentiel à la vie sportive, tout en proposant différents interlocuteurs que les coachs peuvent contacter en cas de litige.

Hilary Findlay, avocate et professeure en gestion du sport, présente la situation actuelle en matière de discrimination sexuelle.

Le rapport présente d’abord sept scenarios réels de discrimination qui préparent le terrain pour l’explication des subtilités qui influent dorénavant sur l’analyse de la discrimination du point de vue légal. On y décrit les champs de compétence fédéral et provinciaux, ainsi que la situation particulière du système sportif canadien, qui vient compliquer l’analyse juridictionnelle.

Ces décisions apparemment contradictories peuvent soulever une foule de questions auprès des gestionnaires du sport à l’égard de ce qui constitue réellement de la discrimination sexuelle dans le sport.
