Over 25 successful projects to adapt children’s football to the 2020 pandemic were presented during the Eighth International Forum, which was held on November 30 – December 3 as part of the Gazprom International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship.

The International Football for Friendship Forum was held for the 8th year in a row, for the first time in the online format. The Forum is a unique platform for exchanging views on the development of children’s football in various countries around the world. At the Forum, coaches, athletes, public figures, and heads of sports organisations identify the best practices for supporting children’s sports and discuss the most effective ways to promote the key values of Football for Friendship in the world. The best practices are published with open access and become the basis for the free courses of the Football for Friendship Coaches Academy.

Football is a social game that teaches important values. These include respect, honesty, fairness and devotion to a set task”, pointed out Frank Ludolph, UEFA Head of Football Education Services, Head of the Expert Council of the 2020 International Football for Friendship Award. “The idea behind Football for Friendship is to promote innovation in online learning, emphasize the social role of football and promote local community building to inspire more children around the world”.

In 2020, projects include successful application of organising online classes using video communication services, messengers, and social media. The SLSFA Sri Lanka Schools Football Association and the Sri Lanka Ministry of Education presented an online concept of competitions and contests for children of all age groups. The Brazilian Football Confederation launched several social projects, including those aimed at training goalkeepers, providing social services, and supporting a highly active lifestyle during the pandemic-related period of self-isolation. In total, over 100 football academies and federations submitted applications to participate in the Football for Friendship Forum. Projects were presented in the following nominations:

  • Changing the World: Educational Activities
  • Stadium Is Where I Am: Improving Football Skills
  • Earth is a Ball: Providing Football to Everyone
  • Driving the Planet: Building Football Community

All the projects were evaluated by the International Expert Council, which included world experts in the field of football education: Frank Ludolph, Germany, UEFA Head of Football Education Services, Head of the Expert Council of the 2020 International Football for Friendship Award; Pablo Cesar Torres, Uruguay, President of Youth Football and Scouting at Club Atlético Peñarol, Mike Puig, Spain, CEO of the Soccer Barcelona Youth Academy; and three Football for Friendship Young Ambassadors: Ananya Kamboj, India, Mohammad Yusuf Moazzam, Pakistan, and Sheqayli Ascencion, Aruba.

For the first time in the history of the world football movement, children assessed “adult” projects on equal terms.

“All the projects followed the values of Football for Friendship. And each of them has benefited children in uncertain conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic”, noted 15-year-old football player Yusuf Moazzam, a member of the jury, Young Ambassador from Pakistan. “Judging several projects at the international level was amazing, I really enjoyed it!”

All the projects presented at the International Football for Friendship Forum are open to the public on the programme’s official website https://footballforfriendship.com/experts-forum/. Those who initiated the projects hope that the best practices will be replicated in different countries, benefiting as many children around the world as possible.

On December 9, during the live broadcast of the 2020 Football for Friendship Season final, the best projects in the four nominations will be announced and given the Football for Friendship Award.

Solverde.pt is a Portuguese online casino, based in Espinho, and the company highlights the new creations of the Portuguese company Darwin, from ‘Banca Francesa’, the classic Portuguese game of casinos, to the card game ‘Blackjack’.

SOLVERDE.PT, the Portuguese online casino, announces the launch of new games by Portuguese company Darwin, the casino games production studio.

The Portuguese company Darwin started producing games for SOLVERDE.PT in 2019 and distinguished itself by the innovation of its offer, namely: a realistic version of ‘Banca Francesa’, the classic Portuguese casino game; and six versions of the ‘Blackjack’ card game; as well as a series of slot machines aiming at product disruption.

“Darwin bets on the versatility, and at the same time, the simplicity of the game mechanisms. And the goal is always the same: to optimize the gaming systems so that, from any mobile device, the best experience is possible”, says Sílvia Meneses, Head of Casino da Solverde.pt.

Solverde.pt is the Portuguese online casino with more games available on a single platform: 1300 games. In 2021, the company decided to continue to diversify its entertainment offer, one of the keys to SOLVERDE.PT’s success, in a highly competitive market where creativity and innovation are differentiating factors. This year, the company released 359 new games, with 33 games added only last month. The inevitable highlight is slot machines, which remain the Portuguese’s favorite gaming modality – according to the latest data from the Gaming Regulation and Inspection Service (SRIJ), 76% of Portuguese who play online casino choose slot machines.

“It is with great pride that we reached the 1300 games mark, a growth that has been made alongside a number of studios such as Darwin, which has fully captured the interest of Portuguese players. The online casino is an increasingly competitive market in Portugal and we believe that while our offer stands out for its innovation, we will always be one step ahead”, concludes Américo Loureiro, Director of SOLVERDE.PT.
