To mark 60 years of UEFA, football is being played in 12 host cities from Glasgow to Baku.
No Barriers 2020 brings the excitement of the tournament into schools and is funded by the Football Association of Ireland in Dublin and the Mayor of London, two of the host cities – an international partnership.
Big Ideas is sharing an inspiring football ‘champion’ story for each of the 12 host cities from Hungarian Holocaust survivor Béla Guttmann to deaf footballer, Eunate Arraiza, who has played for the national team in Spain. Each of the No Barriers champions has overcome a barrier to become a star on the football pitch; men and women with amazing stories from the past and present, inspiring pupils to make a difference in their communities.
Stephanie said, “I believe that the powerful stories can inspire the next generation of football fans. ‘No Barriers’ introduces students to the 12 UEFA EURO 2020 host cities and provides a wealth of information which I’m sure all students will enjoy learning about.”
