For the upcoming UEFA Super Cup on 15 August in Tallin, Estonia, our club will collaborate with Save the Children, an organization for the rights of children. Save the Children's logo will be present on the back of the shirt we'll use during the Super Cup.
Save the Children is the leading organization in the defense of the rights of children and infants in all the world. The organization works in more than 120 countries and saves the lives of the children, provides them support and security as well as defending their rights in accordance to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Save the Children has been working in Spain the past 20 years with programs for the most vulnerable children, centered on infants in risk of poverty or social exclusion. Through its programs in Spain, they help the children and their families, so the economical situation or social exclusion in which the children are living in doesn't impede in their rights.
Our club president Enrique Cerezo is proud to see Atlético de Madrid collaborate with Save the Children.
"In such an important moment for the team and Atlético fans, like the UEFA Super Cup is, we’re very proud to announce this partnership with Save The Children, an organization for the rights of children. Through the Atlético de Madrid Foundation, we are always up to date with needs from all over the world. With this initiative, we’re reinforcing our commitment to children, who are the future of sport and society," Cerezo said.
Save the Children Spain's CEO Andrés Conde is delighted to work with our club.
"We’re very excited to work with Atlético de Madrid during the Super Cup. Not only are we going to be present on the shirt of one of the biggest football teams in the world, but one which also shares the same commitment towards children and has values like teamwork and solidarity."
