Israeli and Palestinian Children Take to the Field at the UEFA U21 Championship

Jun 6, 2013


The UEFA Under-21 Championship took place this year in Israel. The Peres Center is proud that boys and girls from the Twinned Peace Sport Schools project took part in the events, both attending games and joining the professional players on the field – a dream come true for the children!

77 children had the privilege of escorting the football players onto field and 16 children served as the Official Match Ball Carriers during various games. In addition over 4,000 Israeli and Palestinian children from the Twinned Peace Sport Schools project watched the games live from the stadiums, including the exciting final game.

The Peres Center is grateful to its partners McDonald’s and Kia Motors Worldwide, for warming the children's hearts and making this once in a lifetime experience so powerful!
