Seville Football Club Foundation is one of the cornerstones on which the whole Club is based. It aims to integrate the company with the promotion and development of sports activities and transmit the values of Seville FC through these actions and other social, educational, and cultural activities affecting the society (youth, immigrants’ integration, people with disabilities, marginalised or disadvantage groups, sick people, etc).
Thanks to the power of the Sevilla brand, it offers a support that results in the growth and the greatness of the club. Together with the sporting success the social work is the most satisfying and stimulating reward for the Foundation as a whole. Our Foundation was created to the occasion of our Centenary in 2005 and it intends to develop a consistent social work to give back to our society how much it has given us.
We are “values”. That’s the idea and the way to remark it is through the daily activity of the Foundation. We bet on our core values: education for tolerance, respect, equality… In short, we bring football to all citizens, and thus the values of sport, to get profits towards our society.
Our main objectives fall into promoting sports, disseminating social integration, training and cultural activities and social projects which are materialised in these main activities:
- Sports activities.
