"Buts pour Elles" initiative back for 2019
FDJ relaunches Buts pour Elles initiative
FDJ, thanks to its multi-club partnership, has relaunched the "Buts pour Elles" initiative throughout the month of March 2019 - specifically during Match Days 27, 28, 29 and 30 of Ligue 1 Conforama.
Every goal scored by Olympique Lyonnais during this period will lead to a €500 donation to promote women's football. A local call for projects, operated by the Fondaction du Football, will make it possible to choose the supported initiatives.
This year the operation is endowed with prestigious ambassadors, with the support and sponsorship of Camille Abily (OL).
In order to identify the most relevant initiatives, a call for projects for football clubs will be launched on March 1, 2019. It aims to support initiatives in favor of women's football - in particular, access to the sport for all, more women involvement in leadership roles, support for performances and media coverage of women's sport.
The projects will be distributed proportionally according to the leagues of which our partner clubs are affiliated: one for the Pays de la Loire league, one for the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes league and two for the Mediterranean league.
On April 12, a selection committee composed of representatives from FDJ, the four partner clubs, the Fondaction du Football and other qualified personnel will announce the four winning projects that will share the total endowment obtained thanks to the goals scored by our four partner clubs: Olympique Lyonnais, Olympique Marseille, AS Monaco and FC Nantes.
FDJ promotes women's sports
The Buts pour Elles initiative was developed as part of the societal component of the partnership between the FDJ and its four partner football clubs.
The FDJ was formed in May 2016 as an initiative of Stéphane Pallez, CEO of FDJ, including the program "Sport for Women FDJ" - established to help women's sport according to four main pillars: access to sport for all, more women involvement in leadership roles, support for performances and media coverage of women's sport.
