Without the cooperation of volunteers, non-profit projects are not possible at all. Since 2001 FIM has been implementing social projects in favour of inclusion and education, since 2011 under the name of the FOOTBALL IS MORE Foundation. During this time, over 2,000 people have volunteered for FIM and its projects. Every year we can count on the cooperation of more than 200 people.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who works for charitable projects in their free time. Without this commitment, projects like FIM’s would not be feasible.

Interested in participating in our projects? Please contact us at info@footballismore.org.

Volunteering international Helvetia U16 Cup

Volunteers wanted for the INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP (29.07.-06.08.2019)

Would you like to get socially involved, experience something special, support young people, meet new people and make a difference with us?
Then you have come to the right place!

The team of the association INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP in cooperation with the FOOTBALL IS MORE Foundation organizes the International Helvetia U16 Cup from 01.08. to 04.08.2019 in Lugano (CH).

Since 2001, the INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP has become one of the most renowned young football tournaments in Europe. Local young talents from Switzerland compete against the U16 teams of numerous European top clubs. But the youngsters also get to know each other off the pitch, exchange ideas and make new friends across national borders. The INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP has become unique through its social approach. To draw attention to the situation of children and young people in crisis regions, the organisers invite a special guest team to each tournament. After the Special Guest Teams from Kosovo (2004) and Israel-Palestine (2006), Sudan (2009), Sierra Leone (2011), Laos (2013), Slum Soccer India (2015), a junior team from Gambia took part in the tournament in 2017.

Since the 2011 tournament, Special Needs Teams (children with a disability) will also be holding their own tournament in parallel to the U16 teams.
We would like to continue and even expand our additional social engagement/responsibility for Special Needs at our INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP.
New from 2019: Special Needs European Cup
At the tournament 2017 we had two U16 Team and one Special Needs Team from the same club at our tournament (SV Werder Bremen, Benfica Lisbon). It was a fantastic experience for all players and visitors involved.
For the preparation and realization of the INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP we are looking for active support.

We offer:
·         An interesting event with international atmosphere and social orientation
·         Collaboration in a motivated and socially committed team
·         Free board and (if needed) free accommodation
·         Unforgettable impressions
·         Certificate (depending on duration and type of commitment, the volunteer work can be recognized as an internship)

·         Open-mindedness, resilience and reliability
·         Willingness to “get down to it” during the tournament // physical fitness (construction and reconstruction during the tournament)
·         Enthusiasm for social commitment, youth work, football, etc.
·         Interest in an international environment

Fun working in a team and ability to motivate others
It would be ideal if you could help us from Monday 29.07. to Monday evening 06.08.2017 with the preparation and implementation of the event, but even for shorter periods we do not want to do without your support. Do you have experience in special areas (football, languages, technology, PR, photo/video etc.)? We are happy to give you tasks that are closely linked to your special knowledge.

We have aroused your interest?
We would be delighted if you would get in touch with us to discuss how you can best support the INTERNATIONAL HELVETIA U16 CUP and its social initiatives.
