EFL Week of Action to celebrate football clubs impact in the community

01 April 2022

From 4-8 April, the English Football League Clubs will launch its first ever Week of Action. All 72 Clubs and Community Club Organisations will showcase activity with EFL players and managers joining participants.

Cardiff City FC players will attend community activities led by Cardiff City FC Community Foundation including:

  • Eli King and George Ratcliffe visiting a primary school P.E session in Hawthorn Primary School – encouraging pupils to live healthier, more active lives.
  • Isaak Davies and Sam Bowen met participants at our youth outreach project - providing a safe environment to take part in free football sessions.

Using the appeal of Cardiff City FC to change lives, the Cardiff City FC Community Foundation invested over £1.4 million in local communities in 2021.

More than 20,000 people engaged with education, wellbeing and community safety activities provided by the Cardiff City Foundation.

Foundation Director, Gavin Hawkey, said:

“Football inspires hope, passion and a sense of belonging. Using football as an engagement tool we provide opportunities for thousands of people each year.

The EFL Week of Action is an opportunity for us to celebrate this invaluable work and demonstrate the difference we make to Cardiff City communities.”

As part of the celebrations, midfielder Will Vaulks and Cardiff City FC Women’s midfielder Seren Watkins have also been recognised as the Community Champions for 2021/22 by the Professional Footballer’s Association. Awarded for showing a passion and commitment to community work, both players have been highlighted as influential role-models by Cardiff City FC Foundation participants.
