29 September - PROGRAMME
ON 29TH SEPTEMBER 2017 ITALY HOSTS THE FOUNDATION CERIMONY OF THE EUROPEAN NETWORK OF INTEGRATED FOOTBALL
On 29th September the foundation ceremony of the European Network for the promotion of Integrated Football will take place at Spazio Europa- the Public Space of the Information Office of the European Parliament and of the European Commission Representation in Italy located in via IV Novembre, n° 149 in Rome.
Integrated Football is the new sports discipline which allows a sports competition of disabled and non-disabled athletes jointly, made possible by a set of rules conceived by CSEN and spread in Europe through the European project “A new Frontier of Sport for All” co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme.
Thanks to EC grants, the Network has already reached Germany, Portugal, Slovakia, Lithuania and Bulgaria, which, together with CSEN, the Foro Italico University and Coop Mens@Corpore in Italy, have established national sports associations for the diffusion of Integrated Football.
In the course of the project, trainings for coaches and referees of Integrated Football have been held. Today there is a register which includes members from six European countries.
On the 29th September, prior to the constitution of the European Network, the representative of each national association will explain the programme of activities for the upcoming season.
As to Italy, Leonina Benigni, professional educator and President of the Italian Association, Miriam Minardi, psychologist of the Project Office of the National CSEN, Andrea Borney, trainer and Integrated Football coach, as well as professors of Foro Italico University Pasquale Moliterni and Angela Magnanini have clear ideas for the future: they have worked out a challenging schedule of steps and activities in order to establish integrated sports centres in all Italian regions and launch the first National tournament of Integrated Football.
Meantime, during the event at Spazio Europa- with students from Foro Italico University and from sports high schools among spectators- the kick-off of the first regional tournament of Integrated Football will be shown in streaming. The tournament takes place in Sardinia, realized thanks to the strong will of the CSEN regional President Francesco Corgiolu: thus it will be possible to watch the enterprise of disabled and non-disabled athletes engaged in this new sports discipline.
Andrea Bruni, manager of CSEN Project Office, comments: “Let me express our satisfaction at the results achieved by this project. However, we still have a long way ahead of ceaseless work in order to increase the awareness and acceptance of diversity. We do our part every day, starting from the promotion of sport for all”.
