Welcome to the Neuro Euros 2024!

“Football is a game you play with your brain.” - Johan Cruyff

Get ready to lace up your boots, cheer on your favourite teams, and make a real difference in the lives of those impacted by neurological conditions.

What is the Neuro Euros campaign?

As the UEFA Euros 2024 takes centre stage, we’re harnessing the power of football to raise awareness and funds for The Brain Charity.

We’re challenging you to take on a football themed challenge between 14th June and 14th July in line with the Euros fixtures, with the goal of raising vital funds for The Brain Charity’s services.

Whether you’re playing on the pitch or the console, cheering from your sofa or the sidelines, every fundraiser will contribute to a brighter future for individuals living with neurological conditions.

A Note on Safety:

*The Brain Charity does not endorse heading the ball in any football activity, including keepy ups and amateur matches, due to the potential risks of brain injury or development of brain conditions later in life. In line with FA Guidance, under 11s should never perform heading, with under 18s and amateur adults suggested to avoid heading where possible and limit any heading to no more than 10 in one session.

Although more research is required, and is underway, into possible links between heading footballs and brain injuries/conditions, The Brain Charity strongly advocates that any footballing activities undertaken as part of The Neuro Euros should avoid heading at all times.
