Crownprincess Victoria visits Buntkicktgut

Together with her mother Her Highness Cronwnprincess Victoria of Sweden supports underprivileged children. That’s why she came to see Buntkicktgut on the occasion of her visit to Munich.
“Buntkicktgut” means “Colourful kicks well”. It’s an initiative – established in 1996 by Ruediger Heid and Memo Arikan – which uses street football (soccer) as means for the integration of immigrant kids. In the meantime its League with 150 teams and more than 1500 participants has become a respected institution that served as example in several countries in Europe. For it’s efforts to promote tolerance, integration, non-violence and self-esteem within the community of young people from different origins and cultures Buntkicktgut has received awards from the German Football Association, from the Lord Mayor of Munich and from the President of the Federal Republic of Germany.
