Roberto Carlos, Global Ambassador of the Gazprom International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship, launched the I Love Football competition, passing the baton to Alexei Smertin and Ananya Kamboj, a young participant in the project.

“We all love football. But why? For me, it is a great way to bring people together and show that we are all equal. What about you?” the legendary footballer Roberto Carlos writes on his personal page.

The essence of the new competition is that participants share the stories of why they love football, upload photos or videos to social networks Instagram, Facebook, Twitter with the hashtag #ContestF4F, tagging their friends. Those who share the most interesting stories according to Roberto Carlos will receive t-shirts signed by the football legend, the Animalues board game, and the international symbol of the project – the Friendship Bracelet.

The Eighth Season of the Gazprom International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship has become unusual for both the organizers and the participants. All the main events of the programme are held online, but in this format the organizers have found a way to stay active, and also new ways of development. In 2020, Football for Friendship brings together an even greater number of participants, new activities have been created that allow more children to express themselves, find their interest in the programme, and for some of them to make their dreams come true.


The competition is held on November 17-30.
