Recent Erasmus+ sport projects, which fairplay-VIDC coordinates, include "Queering Football" (2016-2017), "Sport Welcomes Refugees" (2017-2018) and "Sport Inclusion of Migrant and Minority Women“ (#SPINWomen). Another focus is on projects in the field of human rights and mega-sport events ("Our Game for Human Rights") and sport for development.

The project "Football Zajedno" promotes equality and non-discrimination among young people in the Western Balkans and is carried out in partnership with the football associations of Bosnia -Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia and is supported by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and UEFA.
