Louis Saha to Present More than Football Award 2020
Former France and Manchester United striker Louis Saha will present the More Than Football Award at the 14th EFDN Conference which will be held online. The goal of the award powered by Musco Lighting is to honour the best social initiatives in Europe delivered by a European Club, League or FA by celebrating the work they do on and off-pitch on a local, national and international level.
Saha will present the award to one of five projects from the shortlist announced by EFDN this week. The five – Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge, Legia Warsaw, Malmö FF and Pro League were selected for the 2020 More than Football Award shortlist. The award honours the best community and social responsibility (CSR) initiative in European football. The shortlisted applicants selected will present a 15-minute presentation at the upcoming 14th EFDN “#Morethanfootball” Conference. EFDN members will vote on the five shortlisted projects on 9 November. Louis Saha will announce the winner on 11 November.
