Over one hundred children from eight communities from both banks of the Nistru River took part in the Football Festival “TOGETHER we are a team” during 12-13 May 2018. The event was organized at the premises of the Sports School for Children and Teenagers in Grigoriopol, left bank of the River Nistru.
The event was attended by teams from localities where the educational and sports institutions were modernized with the financial support of the European Union: Varnita, Serpeni, Roscani, Tanatari, Chircaiesti, as well as Grigoriopol, Blijnii Hutor and Dubasari.
The event was opened by Marco Gemmer, Deputy Head of Operations Section at EU Delegation: “Wherever you play football, the game rules are always the same. The most important thing offered by this event is the possibility to make new friends”.
“This festival has no winners. Each team was awarded a medal, diplomas and a Cup. Hence, we would like to share the fundamental principles of football: respect, friendship and solidarity”, mentioned Valentin Chicu, Grassroots Projects Coordinator of the Moldovan Football Federation (MFF).
