The Grassroots Programme in Details:
 1.: Grassroots Home Championship
 2011-2012. Children from 8 foster homes played football
and did sports at 5 locations once a week, for 3 months. It
means that 280 children from 5 towns played football.
 Locations of the home championships were chosen by
the geographical proximity , which is an issue due to the
fact that the foster homes had to arrange and finance their
own transportation.

5.: The Grassroots European Cup of Children’s
― The Faith and Sport Foundation started this programme in 2000 to help
international foster home groups to do sports in Hungary for 5 days.
― In 2012 The European Cup integrated into the Grassroots Programme, so
we would like to widen the programme on the top of the imaginery pyramid
together with the Hungarian Football Federation.
― In 2012 sportsmen from the following nations played football at the
Grassroots European Cup: Romanian, Serbian, Bosnian from Serbia,
Croatian, Slovenian, Bosnian, Macedonian and Hungarian, all together 100
― 1074 people took part in the programme in 2012.
― The European Cup has been expanding throughout the years by other
European nations, so in 2013 in addition to all the above mentioned nations
Danish, Russian, German, Polish and Slovakian foster homes will have
been participating for the second time with the Grassroots Programme.

The Aim of the Programme
― According to Kálmán Radics the president of the Faith and
Sport Foundation:
• Our foundation agrees and identifies with the aims of the UEFA
and the MLSZ.
•The sportpedagogic values of football (such as the ability to
fight,selflessness, steadiness, personal and team building and
learning to deal with success or failure)should be embraced by
the individual as a sportsman. So the whole programme is
especially important for the foundation, because with its help
these children with no families have a better chance to become
stronger and better people for their own good as much as for the
benefit of the whole society.
•In addition to all this the Grassroots Programme not only
educates but it also entertains which might be the most important
for kids.
