Notts County Football Club is one of the oldest professional football clubs in the world and is now starting a remarkable initiative. The project is called “Football in the Community”, its purpose is to include refugees on and off the field in order to integrate them into the English community.
The club offers two training sessions per week for each newcomer. It is a method for them not only to improve their English and make new friends, but also to improve their physical and emotional well-being.
More than 200 refugees … This is the number they present to us. All these people felt a welcome from the club of the English city of Nottingham from the sport.
This is living proof that Sport plays a fundamental role in our lives. Educate us and shape us in a way to develop our social skills, and more! This is one of the projects Sports Partner admires. We feel fulfilled for being part of an area like this. An area that is challenging is equally rewarding.
Meet the testimony of Omar and Senay here, two of the refugees taking part in this project.
More than ever … we are together to score more points!
