Streetfootballworld Festival 16

The UEFA Foundation for Children supported the solidarity tournament being organised by Sport dans la Ville as part of the streetfootballworld Festival 2016. The festival took place in the heart of Lyon from 28 June to 7 July 2016 and gathered 500 girls and boys from disadvantaged communities all over the world who have been chosen for their desire to help change the world through football. Educational and cultural workshops also feature prominently, enabling the young participants to develop new skill sets and apply them in their local communities.
