Child Protection Policy

FMF supports policies and practices on the safeguarding of children in football in the Republic of Moldova

The protection of children in football is a priority at international and national level, and the need to implement a child safeguarding policy in the football environment is promoted. Every child has the right to practice football in a safe and inclusive environment, free of any form of abuse, harassment or exploitation, and its non-insurance is a violation of children’s rights.
