Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. announces that it will support the "Barça Foundation" established by its premium partner FC Barcelona, the prestigious Spanish soccer team.

The Barça Foundation is an organization established by FC Barcelona in 1994. One of its projects is "FutbolNet," which supports children's education through sports around the world, including in South America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Konami Digital Entertainment believes in the Barça Foundation 's philosophy of "Supporting children and youth from the most vulnerable groups through sports and education in values, for the purpose of contributing to a more egalitarian and inclusive society" and has continued to support its activities.

The goal this year will be to train football leaders through educational seminars about disability sports, and awarding participants who complete the program with a certificate from the University of Barcelona. In addition, recipients and their students will be invited to various FC Barcelona events this summer in Japan.
