“This is the 4th “Art-football” edition and Moscow has becoming used to it, - Yuri Davydov, organizer of the Festival said. – More and more teams wish to take part in it but unfortunately we could not invite all of them. I would like to welcome the newcomers – Italy, Kazakhstan and Iran. And I am happy to announce that we have received full support from FIFA. Joseph Blatter sent us a letter of greetings in which he called “Art-football” “Artists’ World Championship. So from now this is the legal name of the tournament. Let’s try to play football better! But do not forget about songs! The concert program will be staged at the Sokolniki park. I know every team have many talented artists who are not very well known in Russia. So there will a good opportunity to meet them. The concert part of the Festival could be crucial for the final results of the Festival. The Grand Prix will be handed to the team with the minimum points – football tournament and concert contest places summed together”.

“Last year all the teams visited orphanages, - Natalya Davydova, head of the “Under the flag of Kindness!” Foundation said. – At the “Art-football”-2014 we will continue our efforts to help children with the assistance of our Foundation. And the final day of the Festival medical certificates will be given to seriously ill children who need expensive treatment. “Art-football” is not only football matches and songs but also a big charity project”.
