EFDN is proud to announce our 12th EFDN Conference: ‘Morethanfootball’. The Conference will be hosted by Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge in London on the 26th and 27th of March 2019.

The 12th EFDN Conference will bring together leading practitioners and experts from around Europe to connect, learn and build on each other’s experience, discuss new trends, find solutions to challenges and work together to strengthen the social power of football.   Key representatives from EFDN member clubs will present their flagship community programmes and best practice while breakout sessions, round-table discussions and study visits provide our conference attendees with new insights on innovative programmes, trends and inspirational opportunities.  This 12th EFDN Conference will bring together more than 150 representatives from European football clubs, leagues, football associations and governing bodies, making it the largest event in Community and Social Responsibility in European Football.


The 12th edition of the EFDN Conference is the inaugural event of the 2019 #Morethanfootball Action Weeks with #Morethanfootball being the theme.  The #Morethan football initiative is a collaboration between EFDN, ECA, UEFA Foundation for Children, SPFL and the Pro League with the objective of uniting the European football family in highlighting the wider impact of their community and social responsibility activities.  170 organisations from 28 countries took part in the first two #Morethanfootball Action Weeks in 2017 and 2018 and we look forward to welcoming even more in 2019.  Join the #Morethanfootball movement here
