Football for Friendship (F4F) will unite young participants – 12-year-old football players and journalists – from 211 countries and regions (including Australia, Fiji, Vanuatu) in Moscow, Russia from 8 to 15 June 2018 right before the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
F4F is an international children’s social program initiated by the Gazprom in 2013 and traditionally supported by FIFA and UEFA, as well as by a wide range of national football associations and regional youth sport clubs. The values declared by the program participants and its aims fully correspond to FIFA’s mission.
F4F is a unique place where young participants of different backgrounds, nationalities and physical capabilities not only meet and communicate with their peers from other countries, as well as with famous football players and public figures, but also become young ambassadors to promote universal values themselves among their peers.
The aim of F4F is to develop youth football by championing youth sport and a healthy lifestyle as well as by promoting tolerance and friendship among children from different countries. Its key values are friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, tradition and honor.
In order to achieve these goals, Gazprom organizes a number of national and international initiatives involving children:
International Children’s Forum;
International Street Football Tournament;
International Day of Football and Friendship;
International Children’s Press Center;
Nine Values Cup awarding ceremony.
