Football & Migration

Playing football in a team offers various opportunities of social learning and developing transversal competences – independent from cultural background. Sport can provide a useful function in reinforcing social inclusion. Many young migrant people show enthusiasm in (team) sports, with young men especially keen on football.
The football pitch, however, is one social location where integration seems to be successful in many cases. The activities of the Hattrick project build on to this setting.
