With great sorrow, we received the news of the death of Professor Damir Karlovic, former and longtime president of HASK Mladost, who passed away last Friday.
On behalf of the European Multisport Club Association, we offer our deepest condolences to all the people of Hask Mladost, who will carry on, in present and in future, his inspiring ideas.
Great news from Hungary! Ferencvaros’ School Programme received a Fair Play Award from the Hungarian Olympic Committee’s Fair Play Committee. The Fradi programme involves athletes of the Club in different school meetings with children promoting the values of sport.
Last year, these initiatives were made with the contribution of our Sport&Support Project, that gave our Hungarian friends the opportunity to boost their activities with children. And now the legacy of the project is being carried on: now more than 100 schools and 31,000+ students are involved.
A wonderful night full of events and sport, coloured with S.S. Lazio white-skyblue colours. Last Saturday, 24th June, a great framework of events took place in Fregene (Fiumicino – Rome). “Notte Bianca in Fregene”, organised by the Municipality of Fiumicino promoted and supported more than 200 initiatives of all kinds, from gastronomy to music, passing through sport and culture.
Regarding sport events, particularly relevant was the creation of a sport village, created thanks to the efforts of S.S. Lazio Baseball, Softball and Lacrosse and other sections of Società Sportiva Lazio. Participants of the events, in particular children, experienced the values and the opportunies to play different sports, having fun with coaches, athletes and their families.
The Night revealed itself a great success in terms of engagement. And it was also a great moment for disseminating the European actions that S.S. Lazio is bringing on. In particular SafeYou Project was very well described among people, who pledged the initiative of S.S. Lazio Baseball, Softball and Lacrosse. Welcome Project too was present with a delegation of S.S. Lazio Basket.
«Thanks to the precious contribute of all the sport federations and associations involved in “Notte Bianca”, we left a white-skyblue sign in Fregene – said proudly Giuseppe Sesto, president of “S.S. Lazio Baseball, Softball & Lacrosse 1949” to the Sport Section Official Website -. These events are important moments, that can give people emotions and hope, since sport is not only sport for us… it is life!».

In this day, 20th June, we celebrate the World Refugee Day, an important date selected by the United Nations. The European Multisport Club Association and the Welcome Team praise this initiative and are happy to play their role in the integration of refugees in the European continent. This is the power of Sport!
“In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
To do this, the UN Refugee Agency launched the #WithRefugees petition in June 2016 to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.
On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th, we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee”.
Few days ago, Società Sportiva Lazio, represented by the president Antonio Buccioni and the Vice-President Federico Eichberg, received the appreciated visit of two emissaries of Feyenoord, the Dutch sports club that recently won the Eredivisie (football championship in Holland).
Feyenoord has decided to undertake a Multisport path, widening their experience from being a Monosport Club – football club – to a Multisport Club. That is why Mr. Ton Strooband and Mr. Raymond Salomon met Lazio management, identifiying in the white-skyblue Club and in the EMCA network a good partner of dialogue and sharing best practices.
Day after day, EMCA has been becoming a landmark in the European sport movement and the communications between our Clubs and other clubs and institutions are growing strong. And it is a pleasure for us to spread the Multisport culture among such important partners from different countries of Europe.
