Solidarity and inclusion through the universal language of football
Support for clubs, grants, solidarity campus and inclusive competitions
The main objective for the collaboration is to give support to (associated) Futsal clubs in penitential centres in Catalonia, offering grants to all players who come from families with low resources and putting in place the Solidarity Campus for children at risk of social exclusion.
Besides this, for the third consecutive year both entities have organised ‘Enfutbola’t, Futbol per a tothom,’ a football and futsal tournament for players with physical, mental or sensory disabilities. In total, these activities have directly benefitted 700 people.
Apart from this, the FC Barcelona Foundation collaborates in the 'Enfutbola't initiative. Football for all”, the leisure-sports day organized by the Catalan Football Foundation, whose protagonists are male and female players with functional, intellectual and sensory diversity.
