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.

Join us for our one-day forum on Thursday 26 September in Hampden Park (Glasgow), and share your experience, ideas and know-how on using football for the social inclusion of refugees, migrants and asylum-seekers!

We look forward to meeting you there!
