Social Role of Sports / Down here, football is not just a game, it can save lives
  • Attila Szalay (Hungary)

In the poorest settlements of Hungary, you often don't get a teddy bear, but you can get herbal cigarettes for two hundred forints. A happy childhood is the same for everyone, but unfortunately not everyone is given it. What are the chances of breaking out of this closed world for someone who was born into it? Football has proven its power to change fate worldwide, showing a way out of Brazilian favelas and African refugee camps. Many people do a lot to make the stars available from the Hungarian Gypsy settlements. With patience, dedication, care - and of course with a ball. A report on a Balatonszem match that goes far beyond football.
