Legia joins #Morethanfootball
The image of the club is influenced not only by on-pitch performance, but also by community work outside the stadium. Clubs become more and more aware of their social role and big responsibility which rests on their shoulder. In effect, the number of social activities carried out by clubs inreases, and establishing club's charitable foundations becomes more popular.The #Morethanfootball Action Week is going to promote club's broad social activities, thanks to which they unite community even stronger and showcase club's activities outside of sports.
There are over 60 organisations participating in the #Morethanfootbal action. These are mainly football clubs or foundations operating within them, as well as international football organisations. The Legia Foundation finds itself in the prestigious group of clubs such as: Juventus FC, Newcastle United, Club Brugge, Athletic Bilbao, PSG and many others. The action is organised by European Football for Development Network (EFDN) - an organisation which functions as a platform for exchanching CSR experiences between European clubs.
"#Morethanfootball is an action which goal is to show a positive impact of professional football. And this is not about sport, but about the involvement of clubs and their members (employees, players, supporters) in social activities. The slogan "more than football" says a lot: Football is more than a sport, it is also a social responsibility and the possibility of a positive influence on the lives of others. This is exactly the genesis of the foundation of the Legia Foundation" said Anna Mioduska, president of the Legia Foundation, on the subject of the campaign.
Fundacja Legii (The Legia Foundation) is an independent, non-profit organisation founded in 2015 by Legia Warsaw. Legia Foundation was the first foundation operating within a football club in Poland. Nowadays, the Foundation is becoming more recognisable, respected and innovative organisation with considerable impact not only on the local communities, but also throughout the country. Legia is fully aware of the significant role it plays in the society and the impact it can create through community and social responsibility programmes. The Foundation aims to bring help to the people in need and disadvantageous conditions in Poland. Therefore, it offers various types of single actions, long-term community programmes, as well as direct financial and in-kind support. The Foundation and the club itself, see themselves as a role model, trying to encourage, and motivate everyone to join the great Legia Warsaw family and be #ReadyToHelp. Because “every day is good to start helping others”!
