Children’s drawings from ten UEFA Foundation for Children projects will feature in the design of the 2020 UEFA Super Cup match ball. Today, UEFA begins telling the stories of the youngsters whose creativity made this unique initiative happen on its Instagram platforms.
This season’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League winners will play the annual UEFA Super Cup match in Porto on 12 August with a special match ball featuring a series of children’s drawings integrated into the ball’s design.
The drawings are the work of 18 children with different backgrounds from ten European organizations who work together with the UEFA Foundation for Children, who were selected by the chairman of the foundation’s board, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin.
Children from across the continent were encouraged to submit drawings showing what football meant to them in a contest organized by the foundation together with its ten partner organizations. Mr. Čeferin chose the 18 drawings from a portfolio of more than 200 contributions.
“I’m sure that the children will be thrilled to see their drawings on the Super Cup match ball, and to know that stars of our game will be scoring goals with it,” said the UEFA President.
“These young people know the work of the UEFA Foundation, and I am proud that they want to be part of one of UEFA’s showpiece events.
“It was inspiring to see all these excellent drawings and hear the stories of the children. I hope that the joy they feel because their artwork is on the ball for such an important match will motivate them not only to play football but also to follow their dreams.”
