More than Football Fund

EFDN has launched the “More than Football Fund” in the Netherlands. With this fund, EFDN wants to further strengthen the social power of the clubs and increase the impact of the projects.

Anyone who is involved in football knows that it is more than a simple game. From tactics to a financial budget, there is a lot involved. A professional football club is also an important place where young and old and people from different backgrounds meet. The social activities of Dutch clubs also promote an active and healthy lifestyle that contributes to both physical and mental health.

The social efforts of the club and the accessibility of the stadium for people with disabilities contribute to the connection between the city and the region. The stadium is often used not only during matches but also for all kinds of social projects in the fields of education, health, employment and social inclusion. Football clubs carry out more and more projects for a growing number of participants, but financing these projects remains difficult.

Thanks to the ‘More than Football Fund’, Dutch EFDN members can apply for a grant of EUR 2,500 to EUR 10,000 for innovative projects for which they have difficulty obtaining funding from other funds. With this fund, together with Unibet Impact, EFDN wants to further strengthen the innovation of social projects and the cooperation between clubs.
