Cruyff Court Molenbeek’s first football tournament to kick off the #ChangeOurGame public campaign

On Thursday, June 28, the first mini Cruyff tournament will be played in Brussels. This will start off the #ChangeOurGame public campaign. During the tournament, participants and spectators will be able to meet young Cruyff Coaches from Molenbeek and Mechelen and see the Cruyff Court in action. After the tournament, the RWDM Football club will welcome all football fans to watch the Red Devils against England in their third World Cup match - on a big screen in their Edmond Machtens Stadium.

Public campaign #ChangeOurGame

Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen and the platform PlayandPeace start a unique collaboration with RWDM Girls with the public campaign #ChangeOurGame. During the upcoming football season, the three partners commit to support the sale of the song ChangeOurGame and raise money for the following causes:

  • A benefit concert for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Belgium
  • A third Cruyff Court in Belgium (after Mechelen and Molenbeek)
  • Focus on women's football in Belgium and in particular support for the RWDM Girls 

The positive and hopeful song ChangeOurGame that was written after the attacks in Brussels and Zaventem can be purchased here for 2.5 euros.
