Tanja Walther Ahrens, award winning EGLSF campaigner explains: "This the second time we have been successful in securing funding from the EC! This is great news as this project will build on past work and will help people understand that it still is so important to increase the visibility of lesbians and gay men in sport and to counteract homophobia in many different and creative ways."

The project contains a strong youth focus and includes a Football For Equality Tournament for young people in Slovenia and the introduction of the anti-homophobia message in the Mondiali Antirazzisti (Anti-Racist World Cup) in Italy during 2011.
Walther Ahrens concludes: "This is a unique opportunity to make a positive difference to football across Europe."
