EFDN welcomes new member FC Pyunik
EFDN is delighted to welcome the Armenian professional football club FC Pyunik as our new member. Pyunik is one of the most popular and most successful clubs in Armenia.
By the end of May 2017, the ownership of the club was changed and the club has been actively engaged in community work with children since then. By joining EFDN, FC Pyunik is eager to expand it’s work especially in the local and wider community and also share the club’s expertise with other EFDN members.
FC Pyunik’s football team actively participates in visits to educational complexes and encourages the children to take part in community activities. The club supports children that come from poor regions by covering their school transportation expenses. FC Pyunik has organised several times special events and surprises for children with autism. Children under special care can come to the team’s training center and play with professional footballers. The children also attend some of the team’s matches.
Pyunik’s coaching staff, alumni and administrative staff regularly join city cleaning and tree planting actions to raise awareness and contribute to environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the club has launched a women team in 2019, to grow and develop women’s football in Armenia.
EFDN is looking forward to exchanging knowledge and best practices with our first Armenian member. FC Pyunik representatives are also attending the 13th EFDN Conference in Barcelona on the 19th & 20th of November.
