International Children`s Social Programme FOOTBALL FOR FRIENDSHIP

FOOTBALL FOR FRIENDSHIP (F4F) is the International Children`s Social Programme implemented since 2013 by Gazprom, official partner of FIFA and the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

Programme`s key values are friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, tradition and honour. The F4F project aims not only at developing children’s football, but also promoting healthy lifestyle, open-mindedness and friendship among children from different countries.

The final events of the 6th Season of FOOTBALL FOR FRIENDSHIP for the first time will be held in Moscow, Russia, during the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ on 8-15 June, 2018. Young participants from all over the world united in 32 international mixed Teams of Friendship, regardless of gender, nationality, and physical abilities, will take part in the first ever Football for Friendship World Championship.

Furthermore, the young participants will have a chance to communicate with famous athletes at the most important event – Football for Friendship International Children's Forum and to bring and share afterwards the values of the Programme and their achievements with peers in their own countries.
