April 26 – Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League finalists Club America and Tigres UANL are taking part in educational workshops today, on the eve of the final, to raise awareness of diversity and send messages of inclusion and respect.
The workshops will be followed by a soccer clinic, including activities to improve football skills. The initiative will culminate with a match at the training grounds of each club.
The workshops are being conducted using coaches from CONCACAF, the clubs and the global organisation The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVP), which promotes inclusion, peace and respect through sport.
The initiative is related to the CONCACAF Embrace Diversity programme launched under Jeffrey Webb’s presidency in 2013 and Liga MX’s Abrazados por el Futbol campaign, which is a collective effort aimed at encouraging respect toward others.
Tomorrow the final of the Champions League will be played at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. The winner will be the CONCACAF representative at the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2016.
