FPF Participates in GOALSCORE Training Project

The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) participated, during this week, in a training of the Erasmus + GOALSCORE project, in Bucharest, at the headquarters of the Romanian Football Federation.

The initiative was addressed to National Coaches and aimed at detecting cases of gender-based violence among athletes, as well as empowering the representative coaches to train other national coaches by implementing activities with the teams. The training took place in Bucharest and brought together the coaches of the National Federations of Portugal, Malta and Romania.

The GOALSCORE project uses football to combat gender-based violence against young women aged 18-21. In addition to FPF, the project counts on the contribution of several partners: Maltese Football Federation, Romanian Football Federation, Unimore, MWL, FILIA, APAV (Portuguese Association for Victim Support, Portugal) and EuroActiv.

Representing the FPF, in Bucharest, was the National Coach Susana Bravo who emphasised the importance of this initiative.

“Our coaches will learn about the project, as well as the actions/activities, and specialise in detecting signs of gender-based violence among players and how to create a safe space for them. Through football, the players are learning to identify gender-based violence. This project has several phases, the next one being the sharing/training of coaches in each of the countries involved, and the application in women’s football teams. This workshop was very interesting, both for the knowledge acquired and preparation, and for the sharing of participants […].”
