The Community Champions League is delivered in partnership with EFDN and involves nine community-engaged football clubs from the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Norway, Portugal, Hungary, Belgium and Germany.
The Community Champions League is a social street football competition organised locally in nine cities in eight different European countries. Participating teams can win more points through Fair-Play, Fair Support and Volunteering in community activities in addition to winning their street football matches.
Aberdeen FC Community Trust Partner Schools Coach David Clark said:
“It’s fantastic to get the Community Champions League back up and running after such a successful start in 2019. Due to the pandemic we had to postpone the competition between our schools but delighted to get the chance to begin again.”
“I am looking forward to seeing how the schools can connect with their communities and also the growth of the league.”
Through our Education Pillar we have enrolled 5 of our Partner Schools – Quarryhill, Manor Park and Heathryburn from Aberdeen City and St. Andrews and Buchanhaven from Aberdeenshire who will compete against each other in the league this season. The participating schools will organise social workshops that tackle racism, bullying, discrimination amongst others, including actions that help benefit their community to promote volunteering and citizenship.
Manor Park Primary School Head Teacher Gill Graham said:
“Team MP are so excited to be getting the chance to learn new things, develop skills and most importantly we will be able to make a connection to life on and off the pitch and make a difference to our school and community.”

Community Champions League is Back!
