Almost 1,000 children and young adults are set to play an integral role at the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 thanks to the FIFA Youth Programme.

Before all 16 matches during the two-week tournament, 62 youngsters will perform a range of roles including bearing the FIFA and National flags as well as escorting the players to the pitch. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get close to their heroes and be involved with the festivities in Russia.

Each of the kids involved, aged six to 17, will be chosen through various methods organised by Youth Programme sponsors Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, adidas and Kia. Some will come from local football teams, others will be winners of specific competitions while another group will be selected from local orphanages in the four host cities.
