This programme brought together young football players from 64 countries who acted as ambassadors for the programme. 12-year-old boys and girls were united in eight international Teams of Friendship. The role of coaches was performed by young players from previous seasons.

The International Friendship Camp was held from 27-29 of June. Young coaches and famous football players helped train young football players to establish relationships between teams, elaborate on team tactics and help them feel the support of other team members.

"I enjoy being here. My first time here I was a player and this time I am a young trainer. This new role is quite difficult for me, because I have to be an example for my team and lead them. I am sure that my future will be related to sport," said the only young girl coach.

Before the friendship final, the main coach of St. Petersburg's team of rugby on wheelchairs took place in the draw.

The culmination of the competitive part of the FIFTH SEASON OF GAZPROM FOOTBALL FOR FRIENDSHIP INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S SOCIAL PROGRAMME was a unique award ceremony for the finalists. The captains of the teams awarded each other medals, diplomas and special prizes.
