Teaming Up with Nike for Sport and Social Inclusion in Barcelona

For the third consecutive season, Nike supported FC Barcelona Foundation to deliver the Made to Play social inclusion program for at risk children and youth in Barcelona city. Made to Play promotes sport and physical activity, with special emphasis on increasing girls’ participation. The
objective of the project was to de-stigmatise children and youth at risk of social exclusion, forge social links, and develop personal and life skills.

During the 2021/22 season, over 200 children and youth participated in after school weekly sessions delivered by FC Barcelona Foundation coaches and educators. The project took place in several schools and social centres in seven neighbourhoods of Barcelona. Sessions incorporated the SportNet methodology which combines sport, games and physical activity as a tool for social inclusion.
