"Football as the engine, social commitment as the fuel, diversity as strength!" - that's the motto of the City Pirates. A social football project in Antwerp (Belgium) where football is used to give young people a chance in life and a chance to learn skills.


education is key

Education is at the heart of the City Pirates project. Moreover, the social aspect goes hand in hand with the sports aspect. Both elements were key factors in leading Lotus Bakeries to support this project.
