FARE (Football Against Racism) funded project:

"Organisation of a football match between local teams and a team of refugee youth of mixed nationalities in the town of Mukachevo"



Background Information:


Following last years successful event, NEEKA Ukraine has once more applied for this grant to fund another football game as well as all the training ascociated with it for this year (2011). The temporary accommodations centre in Mukachevo houses a number of refugee youth between 16 - 18 years old from a wide variety of countries including Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq and Syria. Among the few activities that this multi-national group of young people were interested in, is football practice and playing between themselves in the courtyard. Keen to stimulate their interest, NEEKA applied to FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) for the possibility of sponsoring a football match between a local club called "Meteor" and the refugee team called "Sitare". The theme of the game will once more be "football against racism and xenophobia". The activity will consist of intensive training and is planned to culminate with a football match between these two clubs at a local stadium.
