The Eric Abidal Foundation and the FCF Foundation join forces to childhood cancer research
The Eric Abidal Foundation and the Foundation of the Catalan Football Federation have decided to join forces for the 1st Futsal Charity Tournament organized by the foundation of the former French footballer, with the support of Ricoh Spain and Club Futsal Sant Cugat.
The goal of the charity tournament, which takes place between the 5th and the 6th of December 2015, is to raise funds for childhood cancer research and, more specifically, for the creation of a research scholarship for a pediatrician at the Hospital Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona.
The Foundation of the Catalan Football Federation joins the initiative of the Eric Abidal Foundation contributing with their collaboration and support. On the occasion of this collaboration for the Charity Tournament, the President of the EA Foundation, Eric Abidal, and the President of the Foundation of the FCF, Andreu Subies, have signed an agreement to reinforce this commitment.
As part of this collaboration, the FCF Foundation has given to the Eric Abidal Foundation, among other gifts, two shirts of the Catalan football team signed by their coaches that will be used to raise funds in the charity raffle that will take place during the tournament in the ZEM Rambla del Celler in Sant Cugat del Vallés (Barcelona).
