The Heroes of Football team were present this morning at the FIFPro European Congress in Malta. During the presentation Karin Blankenstein gave an overview of the aim of the project, while ex professional player, Arnold Smit told the delegation about his personal story. John Ryan, from the European Gay & Lesbian Sport spoke about how it was important to support and protect the players.
Bobby Barnes, board member from FIFPRO, added his support to the project, as he played with Justin Fashanu, and experienced first hand what Justin went through.
The Heroes of Football would like to thank the board of FIFPRO, and all the European delegates for giving us the opportunity to present our project.
