Community Champions League

The Community Champions League is a social street football competition organised locally in nine cities in eight different European countries, where the participating teams can win more 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 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.

Diversity wins

Diversity Wins is an educational programme that promotes diversity, respect and tolerance on and off the pitch, co-funded by the European Union. The project aims at educating, engaging, and inspiring children and young people aged 10 – 16 years through an educational based programme on racial, LGBTQ+, religious, and gender-based discrimination.

Show racism a red card

The initiative delivers workshops around racism, discrimination and gender equality issues in schools under the Diversity Wins banner, aiming to foster social cohesion and reduce physical and verbal abuse linked to racism and discrimination.
