Brentford FC Community Sports Trust are among the organisations that have signed up for the EFDN #Morethanfootball Action Weeks. The 2020 #Morethanfootball Action Weeks run until 11 October across Europe. Our Trust have signed up to do their bit.
Football has always been much more than just a game. Football organisations all across the world have supported their communities throughout the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and have launched new initiatives to help people stay safe, active and healthy. The EFDN are calling all stakeholders in football to participate in the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks to showcase and further broaden the reach of community and social responsibility in football.
EFDN - European Football for Development Network - consists of professional football clubs who are committed to their communities and social responsibilities and have the passion to cooperate and engage on a European level. This collaboration creates a network for knowledge sharing in order to develop a diversity of training methods that will directly benefit local social responsibility and community programmes. The goal of EFDN is to support the efforts of its members to broaden their impact and ability to use the power of football for positive change in collaboration with other European Football clubs. Our Trust joined two years ago.
The global campaign for the European football community to showcase the impact of their community and social responsibility activities and programmes is supported by the UEFA Foundation for Children, the ECA and the European Football for Development Network. The Action Weeks provide all community and socially engaged European football organisations with a platform to inform and engage with fans and stakeholders on their activities. They can also raise awareness of the transformative role European club football can play in changing peoples’ lives for the better.
