F1 is continuing its rapid growth in the Mobile Gaming industry by offering fans of all ages around the world the opportunity to get involved in competitive racing, completely free in a brand-new mobile competition. The competition represents the latest step in F1’s ongoing strategy to reach out to a younger demographic and making the sport more accessible through gaming and Esports.

Launched on 7th September, the F1 Mobile Racing Esports competition will be played solely on the F1 Mobile Racing game (free to download on iOS and Android mobile devices), created by Codemasters, who have recently been nominated for the Esports Game of the Year for F1 2019®. Unlike the F1 Esports Series presented by Aramco, which will return in October, there will be no live events or broadcasts for this competition, with everything being contested in-game on mobile devices.

The competition will span across four months with monthly Qualifications Leagues, where a host of in-game challenges and rewards will be available for players competing, before the season climaxes with the Final in December, when one winner will be crowned F1 Mobile Racing Esports 2020 Champion and receive a bespoke trophy.

A breakdown of how the competition will work:

Qualification:
On 7th September the monthly Qualification Leagues will be added to the game in the latest update – this will give anyone with the game the chance to qualify for the finals at the end of the year

Qualification Leagues will run throughout September, October and November
In each monthly Qualification League players must undertake in-game challenges to progress
Leagues reset at the end of each month
The top performing drivers from each monthly Qualification League qualify to take part in the Finals

The F1 Mobile Racing Esports Finals will take place in December (exact dates TBC), with the tournament determining the F1 Mobile Racing Esports champion
The Finals will be divided into three 3-day rounds, with the best performers per round progressing

Gazprom International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship unites 211 countries and regions of the world. The programme invites coaches to complete a new online course of the International Football for Friendship Coaches Academy.

The International Football for Friendship Coaches Academy is a free online educational platform for which were created modules of practical exercises aimed at improving the qualifications of coaches of children’s teams and football classes all around the world. The course is based on the successful experience of work with the international children’s teams during various seasons of Football for Friendship. Its goal is to help coaches teach their students the psychology of training and communication with children of different cultures, races, nationalities, and physical abilities.

In total, over the period of the International Football for Friendship Academy’s existence, over 4 000 coaches have completed their education. The course was developed by the heads of the teaching process and coaches of the FC Barcelona Academy, experts of the FIFA and UEFA humanitarian programmes, representatives of Football Union of Russia (FUR), the Brazil national team, FC Delhi Dynamos, FC Zenit, FC Schalke 04, and football federations of different countries.

The new online course offers theory, practical exercises, recommendations on organizing the training process that encourages the principles of fair play, fairness, equality, that form the basis of the Football for Friendship programme. The educational course is free and available in 10 languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Russia, Spanish, Turkish.

“It’s very important for a football team coach to gain the trust of young players, to prove that they are themself committed to those human and sporting values that they are trying to convey. The International Football for Friendship Academy is a unique educational platform for coaches around the world: the methodology teaches the training processes, as well as the main principles of interaction with young athletes, and explains what qualities and values should be instilled in young athletes so that they can grow into adult professionals of an international level. I have no doubt that the Academy’s work will have a huge positive effect, both for the coaches and for the players,” notes Real Madrid and Brazil Legend, World Cup winner and 3 times UEFA Champions League Winner, Global Ambassador of Football for Friendship, Roberto Carlos.

The International Football for Friendship Academy is part of the new Digital Platform footballforfriendship.com, which has become the main venue for the programme’s events this year. It provides access to broadcasts, International Children’s Press Center materials, player ratings and championship tables, the schedule of the International Forum and the presentations of projects on the development of children’s football.

The International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship is implemented by Gazprom since 2013. Over the previous seven seasons, the programme has united over 6 000 participants from 211 countries and regions and over 5 000 000 supporters.

Young Players and Young Journalists are the participants of the programme – boys and girls aged 12 including children with disabilities. Young Players represent different countries and cultures united in the mixed teams. They show that nationality, gender, and physical abilities aren’t a barrier to becoming a team.
