Local Geneva sports helped


The City of Geneva is pledging to support local sports associations for the second year in a row due to the pandemic.

Many amateur sports have been put on hold due to the restrictions – meaning local football clubs and others are now starved of cash. 

A fund of a million francs has been set up designed to help struggling associations. 

The city says many local clubs are at risk of closure – and without the clubs, there’ll be no amateur sport. It says grass-roots sports are essential for social cohesion.
