The SPFL is proud to join the European Leagues in supporting the European Week of Sport.
The European Week of Sport is an initiative of the European Commission. The objectives of the campaign are to promote participation in sport and physical activity and to raise awareness about the numerous benefits of both.
The Association of European Professional Football Leagues and it’s Member Leagues will be supporting the European Week of Sport campaign through a variety of initiatives and activities leading up to and during the week of September 10-16, 2016.
In the context of this co-operation, the European Leagues agree with the principles set out for the European Week of Sport and will support and contribute, with their communication platforms and audience reach, to the raising awareness activities and initiatives developed by the European Commission.
Sport plays an important role in Scottish society. The European Week of Sport presents a great opportunity to reflect upon the excellent work undertaken by SPFL clubs in their local communities, promoting healthy living and encouraging people to get involved in sport.
