United support European Week of Sport

Wednesday 26 September 2018 10:18

Manchester United are supporting the European Week Of Sport (EWS), which is taking place this week (24-30 September) across the continent.

The initiative is led by the European Commission to promote sport and physical activity across the continent.

Sport and physical activity can contribute to wellbeing, yet participation rates are currently stagnating and even declining in some countries.

The EWS is promoting sport and physical activity for everyone, regardless of their age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it is inspiring Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and find opportunities in their everyday lives to exercise more, not just during the EWS but all year round.

As a member state of the European Clubs Association (ECA), Manchester United back the EWS. The Reds were one of the 16 founding members of the ECA, which now represents the interests of 230 football clubs from 54 different countries.
