Zenit and 47 in the Game hold an inclusive football tournament
The Nova Arena in St. Petersburg played host to our friends at the 47 in the Game football club as they held their first inclusive I'm in the Game Cup. The event was supported by Zenit and Gazprom Neft's home town social investment programme.

The I'm in the Game tournament brought together players with Down syndrome, both boys and girls, from St. Peterburg and Moscow as they fought for the trophy. Eight teams in total took part in the competition. 

The aim of the tournament is to highlight how people with disabilities can enjoy football too. The final between teams from both cities ended in a draw and went to penalties, with the Love Syndrome Foundation from Moscow taking the crown 4-3 on pens.

Zenit coach Anatoly Tymoshchuk handed out prizes for the best players of the tournament and also gave signed Zenit items and other gifts to all the participants.

47 in the Game is a football club for people with Down Syndrome who wish to show the world that people with Down Syndrome can lead an active and fulfilled life. Zenit recently held training camps for the club this June at the Gazprom Academy.
