Vålerenga football organises training sessions twice a week. Two coaches (one women and one man) lead the sessions. The social aim of the project is important as the players meet up one hour before training, and stay one hour after training to eat and socialise. The team have different social activities to build the right team spirit, and they play matches against other teams in Norway. Twice a year they play in a national tournament with other teams for drug addicts.

Main Objectives:

  • To keep people off drugs
  • To enhance social inclusion
  • To promote psychological and physical health

Vålerenga Football had already given former drug addicts work training since 2012. In 2014, the government wanted football clubs in Norway to start soccer teams for former drug addicts. Vålerenga football saw this as a good opportunity to establish a team in the club.
