Background

UEFA is committed to influencing the culture of football organisations and to progressively open them at all levels to a wider range of people with different origins and backgrounds. Captains of Change is an innovative project launched by UEFA to strive for a more inclusive environment, fostering and further developing diversity within the management of football in Europe. Former French international player Christian Karembeu is the ambassador for this new programme, and the UEFA global ambassador of diversity and change, Clarence Seedorf, also supports this initiative.

Objectives

The Captains of Change organisations are encouraged to show their responsibility and leadership qualities like a team captain, with the goal of affecting real change within football organisations.

Implementation

Motherwell Football Club Community Trust achieved this status in January 2017 and are keen to work with any group or organisation to increase the reach and deiversity of our programmes.
