Xavi visits OSCAR Foundation, kicks off pitch construction
Xavi Hernandez visited the Back Garden site in Mumbai’s Colaba region to mark the construction of a new community pitch on March 18, 2019. OSCAR beneficiaries who are a part of Generation Amazing programmes and Generation Amazing Youth Ambassadors joined in welcoming the Barcelona FC legend.
Generation Amazing is the human and social legacy programme initiated during Qatar’s successful bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2022™. It harnesses the power of football to positively impact lives and create sustainable social development in communities.
The football turf, once constructed will effectively reach out to more than 2000 children from low-income communities and surrounding schools.
A total of 28 community pitches have already been built across the Middle East and Asia by Generation Amazing, with the programme reaching more than 250,000 beneficiaries in seven countries.
