Montrose FC & Links Park Community Trust Represent Scotland On The European Stage!
Written By SPFL Trust Media Centre
Montrose Football Club and Links Park Community Trust presented at the European Football for Development Network at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg.
The EFDN is a collaboration of ‘community-focussed’ football clubs from across Europe who discuss and plan ways in which the power of football can be used to address the needs of the communities in which they are based.
The event included a number of grassroots case studies about how the power of football can influence social change and workshops to address key challenges and provide new ideas on how to help social change through football.
A total of 40 clubs from across 15 countries in Europe were involved as well as governing bodies such as FIFA to ensure that there is a strong representation from all areas, so Montrose found themselves alongside some of the biggest powerhouses in European football such as AEK Athens, Manchester United and PSV amongst others.
The club and the Community Trust hope that their involvement with such a prestigious organisation will benefit and enhance the work they do within sport, education and health locally.
