The programme, a joint initiative of Eurofootball and Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation /WCIF illustrates in practice the term “Responsible Corporate Citizenship” and was conducted for the 6th consecutive year.
The representative of Eurofootball, Ekaterina Tonova (Public Relation Manager), and Ivaylo Ivanov (a representative of the 2016 sports talents and judo wrestler, who won the 7th position at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro last year), received the grand award on behalf of the Company. “I want to thank the Eurofootball team for their support to the young Bulgarian athletes, not only for financially supporting us, but also for caring about us and actively helping us to conquer our dreams!” said Ivaylo in the full Royal hall of the Sofia Hotel Balkan.
The Corporate Social Responsibility programme of Eurofootball is ongoing. The new edition for 2017 was launched at the end of January when the national competition for selecting new talents was announced. Currently, 125 applications are processed and will be evaluated by the Advisors’ Group. The proposed funding is nearly half a million BGN according to the review of all submitted project proposals. The names of the winners will be publicly announced by the end of March. The selected young athletes will receive decent financial support for their training and preparation for major competitions.
