Eurofootball wins Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum
Eurofootball won the grand award for the best Corporate Social Responsibility programme in the small and medium business category at the 14th edition of the annual “Responsible Business awards” of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum. The event took place on 14 March 2017 and was attended by representatives of the largest companies in Bulgaria, partners of the Forum from the non-governmental sector, diplomats and media.
The EL Member won the award for the fifth edition of its CSR programme “Sports talents”, aimed at financially supporting young athletes (up to 25 years old) in individual sports including Paralympic athletes and people with impaired hearing/vision. 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.
Eurofootball congratulates all companies that take social development seriously and thanks sincerely those who value the contribution of the program “Sports talents” for the development of Bulgarian sports!
