The Sixth International Football for Friendship Children’s Forum was held in Moscow as a part of the Gazprom International Children’s social programme Football for Friendship in official partnership with FIFA and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.
The Sixth Season of the programme was unique in its scale, as this year, 211 countries and regions worldwide participated in the event, representing six global continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and Oceania, North America and South America.
