The English Premier League is one of the most globally recognised brands in all of the sports, and individuals of all ages follow it. Many individuals today fell in love with the sport at a very young age. It reminds them of the time when their father took them to their first football game, and they were just babies.
Football can bring families together
If you are one of those kids, then there is no denying that football was a major reason why you had such a strong bond with your father or your mother. Parents have a unique influence on how much their children love sports. According to research in the field of sport psychology, children’s development, achievement, and the experience is enhanced through parental involvement.
Just recently, so many kids were seen with tears in their eyes when the news broke that Chelsea’s superstar, Eden Hazard was transferred to Real Madrid. The star had a massive fan following among kids, and it was one of the most emotional moments for so many kids as they were seen hugging their fathers and crying.
More than just a sport, it’s an emotion
Kids who love football would love to watch a live game. Just imagine being in the stands, with your father and witnessing all your heroes in front of you. It is an indescribable feeling. Ask any parent, and they’ll tell you that taking their child to their first football game was one of the best experiences of their lives. Footie With Dad aims to achieve that. Our purpose is to make sure that every kid gets to live their dream turn reality, no matter the reasons. Every child deserves to be happy.
The passion, the noise and the feeling of belonging, this is what makes the game special
Not many children get the privilege of witnessing a football match with their mother or father. Not every parent can afford a ticket to a football game. However, some people donate their tickets to underprivileged parents so that they can also have a memory for a lifetime.
So many kids dream of becoming a football player someday so, their parents can be proud of them. They want to be a part of something that had a major contribution to strengthening the bond between their families. For some, it is even bigger than a matter of life and death.
Eric Cantona, a legend of the game, played for Manchester United, once said that:
“YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR WIFE, YOUR POLITICS, YOUR RELIGION, BUT NEVER, NEVER CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR FAVORITE FOOTBALL TEAM.”
Going to your first football game is a priceless experience for many kids. If we were to ask any football fan, what was their most memorable moment related to football? It most probably would be the time a parent took them to a game where something magical happened. But there is the other half, that never got to live this moment.
Every child must have at least one football moment with his mum or dad
The English Premier League is one of the biggest football leagues in the world and therefore the tickets are also significantly pricy. So, how can an underprivileged child get to live his moment? Don’t these children deserve to be at the game with their mums, just because they cannot afford it? Nothing is worse than a broken heart and wet eyes of a toddler.
Football has the power to bring families together, in time of happiness and in times of sorrow. The love for this sport is so immense that people are donating money, so that disadvantaged children can watch their favourite teams play, with their favourite players and witness their dreams come true with their parents.
There is nothing better than putting a smile on a kid’s face
