The French Football Federation has signed the new eco-responsible charter presented in December by the Ministry of Sports, in partnership with WWF France.

On December 16, the Minister for Sports, Roxana Maracineanu, and the Director General of WWF* France Véronique Andrieux, formalised the new Charter of 15 eco-responsible commitments by organisers of sporting events, with an eye on 2024.

Already a signatory of the first version of the charter in February 2020, the FFF is one of the 41 signatories of this updated version representing more than 250 international and national events. As an organiser of matches at the Stade de France (French men's team and the final of the Coupe de France) and as a site manager, it therefore reaffirms its ongoing eco-responsible commitment.

This new charter constitutes a new stage in the eco-responsibility of sport. More ambitious, it proposes three new commitments, such as: Digital footprint, responsible sponsorship or education for sustainable development, while developing the previous commitments to be consistent with the societal challenges of today and tomorrow.

Achieving all the commitments of this charter is a stated priority of the FFF within its Performance 2024 strategic plan. This approach is more specifically part of its social responsibility program #MarquerDemain.

The Federation is continuing the work already started on the first version of the charter. The specifications for calls for tenders for services for the matches it organises at the Stade de France have recently been modified to include CSR criteria. It mobilises at each meeting around a solidarity cause to respond to one of the commitments of the charter (support for Bleuet de France, the fight against racism, etc.).
