Sport is not just about competing. It's about learning how to win and how to lose, how to play fare, how to organise teamwork, how to become an admired but humble leader. All these skills are highly valuable both in the labour market and personal life.
Sport and physical activity sector is heavily relaying on volunteers. Without them, most activity simply wouldn’t happen. Sport is the most attractive field for volunteering, in which over 30 million people in the EU take part either occasionally or regularly. Both, the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic games had about 70 000 sport volunteers nicknamed as Game Makers or Runners.
Sport is one of the best ways to boost social integration – across social, cultural, ethnical, language and other boundaries. And football is surely one of the most commonly played game across the globe, thus perhaps the best integration tool ever… Or is it?
