Football For Friendship
Football for Friendship (Russian: ФУТБОЛ ДЛЯ ДРУЖБЫ) is an annual international children’s social programme organized by Gazprom Company. The aim of the programme is to promote essential values embodied by football with the younger generation, such as respect for other cultures and nationalities, equality and a healthy lifestyle through the love of sport.
Bill is very proud to have been approached by Gazprom to create 64 illustrations for the 2017 Annual International Children’s Forum and International F4F Championship, International Day of Football and Friendship, which are held in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 26 June to 3 July.
The key values supported and promoted by the project's participants include friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, traditions and honour - all values very close to Bill's heart.
