ECA Member Clubs are invited to apply for the ECA Best Community & Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme Award 2017.

As in the past, the ECA CSR Award 2017 is awarded to an ECA Member Club with a club-driven project (a project initiated by the club; not a third party project in which the club participated), which:

  • aims at supporting/helping the local community by facing/tackling specific regional problems/issues
  • is clearly more a project than an event, showing continuity and sustainability
  • shows positive results benefiting the local community where the club has its roots (rather than benefiting the club itself through e.g. brand promotion)
  • can serve as best practice for all ECA Member Clubs (regardless of club size and CSR budget)

All ECA Member Clubs are invited to apply for the ECA CSR Award 2017. Each club can only submit one CSR project. The ECA Administration will assess all applications and submit a shortlist to the independent ECA CSR Award Jury 2017 to decide on the final winner.

The winner of the ECA CSR Award 2017 will be announced during the official dinner at the 19th ECA General Assembly on 4th September 2017 in Geneva.

Last year's winners were PSV Eindhoven, as ECA recognised the incredible work the Dutch club did with the 'PSV United' campaign. The initiative focused on social inclusion, by inviting children from deprived areas of the city of Eindhoven to attend training sessions provided by the club, with the aim of improving youth behaviour.
