PlayMakers

JOVANA STOJANOVIĆ I NEMANJA MATIĆ AMBASADORI PROJEKTA PLAYMAKERS

14.02.2020.

Fudbalski savez Srbije, kao jedan od sedam nacionalnih saveza članova UEFA, biće prvi koji će predstaviti „Playmakers“ kroz škole, klubove i lokalne zajednice, a sa željom da zainteresuje što veći broj devojčica uzrasta od 5-8 godina koje trenutno ne igraju fudbal.

Ambasadori ovog projekta u Srbiji su Jovana Stojanović, reprezentativka Srbije, i zamenik kapitena reprezentacije Srbije Nemanja Matić.

Jovana Stojanović, reprezentativka Srbije, rekla je: ”Odrasla sam gledajući Diznijeve filmove i fudbalske utakmice. Tada nisam mogla ni da zamislim da će jednoga dana ovo dvoje biti povezani. Drago mi je što UEFA toliko pažnje posvećuje ženskom fudbalu u poslednjih nekoliko godina, a sada sam oduševljena što će i Dizni biti deo naše priče. Nadam se da će ovaj program privući veliki broj devojčica da se zaljube u naš divni sport.”

Nemanja Matić, zamenik kapitena fudbalske reprezentacije Srbije i as Mančester Junajteda, rekao je: ”Fudbal i Dizni u istoj rečenici izmame mi osmeh na lice. Kada sam bio dete često sam gledao Diznijeve filmove kada nisam na terenu, a danas isto to radim sa svojom decom. Nadam se da će ovaj program podstaći devojčice da se uključe u fudbal, a kao otac i profesionalni sportista ovom programu dajem punu podršku.”

👏 Top players are supporting our new #UEFAplaymakers programme with @disney!⁣ ⁣ @Fudbalskisavezsrbije and @ManchesterUnited midfielder @nemanjamatic, who has two daughters and a son, said: “When I see football or Disney in the same sentence, it puts a smile on my face. When I was a kid, I often used all my time between football to watch Disney movies and today I do the same with my children.⁣ ⁣ “I hope this project will encourage young girls to get involved in football, and if they wish to do so, as a father and professional athlete I will give all my support.“⁣ ⁣ @scotlandnationalteam and @ChelseaFCW forward @erincuthbert_ is also right behind the initiative:⁣ ⁣ “This latest initiative from Disney and UEFA is fantastic and offers a new way for children to begin playing football,” she said. “I absolutely love Disney, even at the age of 21. When I was younger, this is definitely something I would loved to have been a part of.⁣ ⁣ “I can see a huge difference now in terms of the number of young girls taking part in football from when I was growing up and playing in a boys team.⁣ ⁣ “Using Disney will not only make football even more enjoyable for girls at a young age, but will also hopefully increase participation levels even more. I can’t wait to see the positive effect that this programme will have.”⁣ ⁣ Playmakers uses Disney’s world-renowned storytelling to encourage more young girls to exercise regularly and kickstart a lifelong love of football.⁣ ⁣ Inspired by academic research showing the positive role of storytelling in helping children take up sport, PlayMakers also aims to increase the proportion of girls meeting the World Health Organization’s minimum standards for physical activity – currently, just 16%.⁣ ⁣ Serbia and Scotland are among the first associations to adopt the programme, which targets 5-8 year-old girls not currently playing football. The others are Norway, Belgium, Poland, Austria and Romania. They will roll out PlayMakers through schools, clubs and local communities. More associations are expected to introduce the programme later in the year.⁣ ⁣ Want to know more? Follow the link in our bio! #UEFAplaymakers #GirlsFootball #Disney
