EFDN & partners engage in latest Community Champions League webinar
Project partners from the Community Champions League programme took part in a webinar that provided updates on various aspects of the project.
The partners discussed and presented on their current situation vis-à-vis the Covid-19 pandemic, whether or not it brought to a halt several elements of the project. EFDN is partnering with Aberdeen FC Community Trust; Club Brugge Foundation; Chelsea Foundation; Ferencvarosi TC; Feyenoord Foundation; Fundação Benfica; NAC Breda; Vålerenga IF Football and Werder Bremen.
The Community Champions League is a social street football competition organised locally in nine cities in eight different European countries, where the participating teams win points through Fair-Play, Fair Support and Volunteering in community activities than by winning their street football matches.
With the aim of promoting social integration through sport, the Community Champions League project provides the opportunity for people from different cultures to come together to build relationships and friendships while breaking down barriers through the prevention of violence, racism and intolerance in grassroots sports and their communities.
The partners agreed on the point system. Participating teams can gain additional points through Fair Play, workshops and community contributions An evaluation report and elaboration for the methodology, practitioners guide, questionnaires and website management were also discussed. Clubs and foundations were also taken through content creation expectations and obligations regarding the various communication channels and dissemination of project updates. The bulk of the webinar was spent introducing them to a new monitoring and evaluation system – Upshot. Staff from the clubs working on the Community Champions League project will receive training from EFDN staff in the coming weeks.
The next project webinar will be held in October.
