Pitch for HOPE, a first dedicated girls-only pitch in Zaatari camp

The UEFA Foundation for Children, the Asian Football Development Project (AFDP) and Lay’s have joined forces to turn unsafe playing areas at two refugee camps in northern Jordan into artificial football pitches.

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said: “These new football pitches have been designed to help create an everyday environment where youngsters can enjoy recreational time and remain children even in wartime. The new girls-only facility in Zaatari meets a growing need to promote girls’ participation in sports at the camp.”
