Football opens hearts
Every month, as part of its #EqualGame campaign, UEFA is focusing on a person from one of its 55 member associations. This person will be an example of how football promotes inclusion, accessibility and diversity; his or her story will exemplify how disability, religion, sexuality, ethnicity and social background are no barriers to playing and enjoying football.
“I am a coach, but football has become more than a game to me,” says Oleksandr Fomichov, who is using “the power of football” to improve the lives of people in his community. “It’s an education, a philosophy and a phenomenon.”
