Young Film Directors Seeking to Capture the Passion of the Game
Those 12 to 16-year-olds will produce a special documentary bringing a fresh young perspective to this competition. Their short film will have a dual focus, featuring both the Youth League finals and a local children’s tournament taking place in parallel at the same venue. Both events will be fuelled by the same passion for the game, and the emotion of the various sets of fans will give a special flavour to that film, which will be promoted by both the foundation and UEFA via their assorted communication platforms.
The UEFA Foundation for Children will also be present at the Youth Plaza, displaying videos, showcasing a photo exhibition and giving children the chance to take part in a big quiz with great prizes.
All ticketing revenue from the Youth League finals will be donated to the UEFA Foundation for Children, helping it to finance projects allowing very seriously ill children to fulfil their dreams by meeting their favourite players and attending big matches.
