AS Monaco and Peace and Sport have announced a partnership in the Europa League.
This season, the international organisation that uses sport as an instrument of peace in the world will be featured on the back of the Red and Whites’ jerseys in the Europa League.
The Monegasque organisation, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, will be visible on the back of Philippe Clement’s men’s shirts during their European matches this season.
AS Monaco intends to spread Peace and Sport’s values throughout Europe during a campaign that it hopes will be as long as possible, and to take advantage of the possibility offered by UEFA to feature a charity on the shirts of clubs competing in the European Cup.
In addition, various awareness-raising activities will be carried out at the Academy with young Monegasque players. As a symbol of the two entities’ desire to move forward hand in hand, Mamadou Coulibaly, a member of the Elite group who signed his first professional contract in May, has been named “Champion for Peace Junior” ambassador by Peace and Sport and will represent the values shared by the international organization and his training club.
AS Monaco will also take part in certain Peace and Sport operations, such as its annual International Forum, and will be involved in the its field programs.
Finally, the Club du Rocher and the organisation will create synergies by making their resources, networks and communication platforms available to each other.
Joël Bouzou, President and Founder of Peace and Sport, said: “Through this partnership, AS Monaco confirms its commitment to using sport as a tool for sustainable peace. By wearing this jersey with the Peace and Sport logo, the players will become agents of change and promote the unifying values of sport from the neutrality of the Principality of Monaco. Like AS Monaco, we are convinced that soccer acts as a universal language that has the capacity to transcend barriers and bring communities together. We are therefore very pleased to partner once again with this club committed to using sport for peace.”
