Clubs unite to showcase community work

The first #MoreThanFootball action week has kicked off with more than 60 football clubs and foundations from across Europe showcasing their community programmes and social responsibility activities.

The annual campaign, which is supported by the UEFA Foundation, was launched at the 8th European Football Development Network conference held in Lisbon, and will run from March 30 to April 9.

Clubs from the UK involved include Aberdeen, Greenock Morton, Glasgow Rangers, Leyton Orient, Cardiff City, Fulham, Manchester United and Everton.

A statement on the website of the organisers read: “Through the use of the hashtag #MoreThanFootball all participating clubs, foundations and leagues can promote their own local programmes and activities while being part of this exciting European campaign.

“All initiatives of the participating organisations will be captured and published on the More than Football website and social media channels. After the campaign, a key process for EFDN will be to create a report along with our research partners to highlight all the facts and figures of the impact of the campaign on national and European level.

“This will highlight to what extent football can have a positive impact on society.”
