Foundation Donosti Cup

15 OCT.

The Donosti Cup Foundation was born with an undeniable aim: to get that youngs from different races and cultures exchanged their experiences thanks to the football. To get it, every year, the Donosti Cup Foundation invites teams from disadvantaged areas or in ways of development to the tournament, financing the expenses of accommodation, food and transport.

In order to select the invited clubs, the different requests that are received are analyzed before and amongst them those projects that have a major social contribution in the environment where the team lives or in the society in general are selected.

Aware of the importance that the most social aspect of the Donosti Cup has and with the desire of giving the opportunity to take part in the tournament to more teams, this year the budget dedicated for the invitation of teams without resources has been doubled.

Thanks to this initiative, teams from countries like Senegal, Nigeria, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Ukraine, Russia, Romania, Uganda, Mozambique, Ethiopia, India or Palestine have taken part in the Donosti Cup.

In 2008, the Donosti Cup got hand in hands of the Infanta Margarita de Borbón the NATIONAL PRIZE UNICEF for its contribution to the infancy through the sport.
