Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Major idea of our project: using Internet technologies to provide young people (schoolchildren) from across Russia with favorable and equal opportunities for discovering their football talents.
Visitors of the youth Internet portal from all regions of Russia participate in the project. Each of them can display their unique football talents, describing them at the Internet portal, illustrating one’s capabilities by means of video. Each project participant originally selects the area where he or she will compete with others (considering one’s skills and capabilities).
The profile of each «Football Talent» gets into a general data base, which contains information about the most capable and talented young Russian football players. The acquired information can be distributed among sport schools of the most famous and popular Russian football clubs, or it can also be used for the development of scout system in the international football. Each project participant will have a chance to get a Grand Prix – implementation of his/her most cherished «football» dream.
