Gazprom’s Football for Friendship international children’s social program has included Bosnia and Herzegovina as a participant in 2018. The project allowed us to engage children ages 12 to 14 in an international football competition by offering them a unique and exceptional experience – to train and play in teams of children from all over the world, at world-renowned venues such as Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Polideportivo Dehesa de Navalcarbón and the UEFA Pitch Ground – Plaza Mayor in Madrid, and to attend the opening of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium, and the UEFA Champions League Final 2019 at Metropolitano Stadium.
In the 2019 season, Bosnia and Herzegovina had a representative on the winning team of the F4F 2019 International Children’s Soccer Tournament.
