FC Eindhoven Foundation – Health Programmes

FC Eindhoven wants to be an accessible club where everyone can quickly feel at home, regardless of age, background, gender, or football talent. In addition, the club will be more visible and, above all, do more for the Eindhoven resident. To really get a place in the life of this Eindhoven resident, FC Eindhoven wants to enter the neighborhoods and districts with activities, initiatives and events, so that people can be helped. The club realizes this through the FCE Foundation.


The programmes are solved under three pillars: Healthy, Happiness, and Equal. Any initiative, activity, or event established by the FCE Foundation is under one of several of these interrelated pillars.
