#Morethanfootball: Social Inclusion Action Day

This year's #Morethanfootball Action Weeks have been going for two weeks and Bayer 04 have joined in with a range of activities. The day of action on Good Friday is being held under the heading of social inclusion. A subject that is very important to Bayer 04 and has a long tradition particularly in the form of the disabled football provision of 'Einfach Fußball'. It is natural that Bayer 04 highlight the socially inclusive character of football on this day.

This year's Bayer 04 ambassadors for the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks are Lukas Hradecky, Nina Brüggemann and Emrehan Gedikli plus Marvin Kruse who has brought the #Morethanfootball idea to life at the Werkself for many years: "It feels like I've been part of the Einfach Fußball team at Bayer 04 forever. During that time I've made a lot of new friends, been able to complete a course as a Young Coach in disabled football and even do a placement at the club. It is clear to me: Bayer 04 are #morethanfootball.”


Leverkusen's Einfach Fußball team have not been able to train at the Kurtekotten Performance Centre for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The annual tournament could not take place either. But for Marvin and his teammates that is no reason to neglect their common hobby. There has been online training for several months – under the direction of Young Coach Marvin.
