Who are you talking to when you talk about ‘football for everyone’?

The “Foot pour Tous” project aims to make sport accessible at a reasonable price, in a friendly environment, around a civic spirit, where the game is given priority over the stakes. The idea of ​​setting up beach football teams for boys and girls aged 18 and over.

Why this age?

We realize that many footballers leave their club when it is time to pursue higher education. It is not easy to reconcile sport and study in clubs that aim for a certain level and a certain number of weekly training sessions. Our offer is intended to be fun, sporty and reduce restrictions.

Does beach football have a place in the sports offering?

I am certainly convinced! We are fortunate to have exceptional facilities with a sand stadium. Beach football should also make its debut at the 2028 Olympic Games. Finally, in Tarn-et-Garonne we have a very large pool of players.

Speaking of ‘football for everyone’, do you think you will open the training to all target groups?

Yes, the goal is to continue with adapted sports. We have already opened slots at Itep de Montauban. But we also want to develop football while walking, and the extracurricular offering, as Charef Razali is already doing with the Montalban colleges.

But what can you imagine during the winter, when the weather does not allow playing on the sand?

In fact, we are going to present a project for a small artificial grass field next to the sand stadium. This allows us to expand the practice throughout the year and why not put together a team of “five”.
