KAS Eupen Fans collect Reusable Cups for a Good Cause

KAS Eupen’s last home game took place last Saturday, October 28 at 18:15 p.m. On this occasion, KAS Eupen invited the spectators at the Stadium on the Kehrweg to take part in a solidarity action for a good cause.

In concrete terms, this means donating the deposit (€1) for the reusable cups used since the beginning of the season in the stadium stands and allocating it to the core project of the KAS Eupen “Special Champions League”.

Together with the football team of the Eupen ZFP Educational Centre, KAS Eupen has been participating in the “Special Champions League” tournaments in several European countries for the past year. It was with the greatest enthusiasm that the boys and chaperones of the ZFP returned from the international meetings in Lisbon and Leverkusen. The project is supported by the EU until June 2024. However, KAS Eupen and ZFP would like to continue to participate in this exciting initiative beyond this date, which is why they have launched the donation campaign via the reusable cups.

Special Champions League

The Special Champions League is a project of EFDN that provides a safe, inclusive, and active environment where young people over 15 years old with an intellectual disability can come together and play football at a level they are all comfortable with. EFDN organises 2 to 4 European Football Festivals per year that are hosted by different EFDN members throughout the year. The tournaments are non-competitive and a way to promote greater social inclusion and acceptance of disability football within European Football clubs and the wider European population.

Through football, EFDN want to get more young people with intellectual disabilities physically and socially active in their communities and increase integration and inclusion within society. The EFDN Special Champions League has been shaped in line with the Special Olympics philosophy, and it will provide opportunities for participants to improve their physical health, increase their confidence, meet new people, learn about others, and establish social bonds. The Special Champions League is co-funded by Erasmus+.
