Estimated Reading Time: 1 minutes


Aberdeen FC Community Trust is delighted to join a host of football clubs and foundations throughout Europe participating in the European Football Development Network’s (EFDN) #Morethanfootball campaign.

The European Football for Development Network (EFDN) consists of professional football clubs, leagues and FAs who are committed to their communities and social responsibilities and have a passion for cooperating and engaging on a European level.

The #Morethanfootball Action Weeks is a global campaign for the European football community to showcase the impact of their community and social responsibility activities and programmes, highlighting how their organisations are about more than just football.

The campaign, which kicks off today, will feature a series of action days over the next four weeks, with a focus on Football & Education, Refugees and Social Inclusion, Accessibility, International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, World Health Day, Gender Equality and Sustainability and Climate Change.

Over the coming weeks, AFCCT will participate in action days to highlight examples of our project delivery.

As an EFDN member, AFCCT works hard to harness the existing support and goodwill towards Aberdeen Football Club, and to utilise that positivity to empower communities and individuals locally, nationally, and potentially internationally.

A significant focus of the work undertaken by AFCCT has been to develop and increase broader community engagement beyond ‘just’ football, with programmes addressing dementia, inactivity, social exclusion, and social deprivation, and more.
