Football for everyone

Samara Association of people with disabilities using wheelchairs “Desnitsa Association” has been implementing the project "Football for everyone" during the year 2022

As part of the project:
- 1,800 people participated in sports activities;
- 4 inclusive soccer teams were formed;
- 4 Days of Sports and Parasports were held;
- A total of 9 local and outdoor sports competitions were held.

The accessibility of sports sections, school and city grounds and the support of specialists allowed teenagers with disabilities to reduce educational and social barriers and develop an active lifestyle.

It is worth noting that the project participants had an opportunity to visit the home stadium of Krylya Sovetov soccer club. Samara citizens have a saying: "Football in Samara is more than soccer". The Samara fans love and actively support this soccer club. To visit their home stadium is a dream for many boys and even girls.

The implementation of the project helped establish partnerships with the heads of the "Summer with Soccer Ball" and "Leather Ball" projects, who will promote the development of inclusive teams in schools.
