The FC Barcelona player opened his own Cruyff Court today in his hometown L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (Spain).
This Cruyff Court is the result of the alliance between the Cruyff Foundation, "la Caixa" Foundation and Barça Foundation for the construction, maintenance and activation of a total of 15 Cruyff Courts throughout Catalonia, prioritizing disadvantaged areas to promote the social inclusion of children and especially vulnerable young people through the practice of sports. The Cruyff Court Jordi Alba has the support of the City Council of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat.
The Cruyff Court opened today in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, joins the Cruyff Court Manel Estiarte in Manresa, the Cruyff Court Sergi Roberto in Reus, the Cruyff Court Ronald Koeman in Sant Vicenç dels Horts, the Cruyff Court Andreu Fontàs in Banyoles, the Cruyff Court Ronaldinho in Les Roquetes, the Cruyff Court Hristo Stoichkov in Martorell, the Cruyff Court Sergio Busquets in Badia del Vallès, the Cruyff Court Carles Puyol in Pobla de Segur and the Cruyff Court Gerard Piqué in Sant Guim de Freixenet. The starting point of this alliance was the creation of the Cruyff Court Xavi Hernández in Terrassa, which laid the foundation for the agreement.
This initiative also promotes two specific youth projects linked to the Cruyff Courts. The Cruyff Courts 6vs6 school tournament for boys and girls from 10 to 12 years in which all the Cruyff Courts participate, and the Heroes of the Cruyff Courts program for young people of the neighbourhood.
