BK WEST UNITED and Partners Euro2024 Side Event Skyline Football Festivals


Leading the way in a ground-breaking initiative, BK West United is organizing football-related side events for Euro 2024 in Frankfurt. The Skyline Soccer Festivals will take place in Frankfurt’s skyline district from April 8 to April 13, 2024, and is being presented in association with AFC Germany, Girls Wanted Soccer, EMZ, and Sportjugend Frankfurt. Through football and other social events, such as the African Women’s Cup, where people of African descent living in Germany will represent their home countries, this initiative seeks to foster community cohesion.


Frankfurt is positioned to become a global hub for this historic event as it gets ready to host five group stage matches of the 2024 European Championship. This offers a unique opportunity for people from different backgrounds to come together, overcoming cultural barriers and encouraging harmony and respect among the city’s citizens. This is more than just a sporting event; it’s a celebration of diversity and a step toward improved social cohesion.


Cherno Barry is the visionary behind BK West United and the main man behind the Skyline Soccer Festivals. He is a strong believer in the power of football to bring people together. He makes the argument that football is a universal language that can bridge gaps and improve people’s lives. Barry sees Euro 2024 as the perfect setting for this kind of event, where Frankfurt’s vibrant atmosphere can coexist with the excitement of football and the spirit of friendship.


The principal aim of the Skyline Soccer Festivals is to leverage the excitement surrounding Euro 2024 in order to produce long-lasting societal transformation. The event seeks to celebrate the various cultures that enhance the local landscape and highlight the contributions of the African diaspora in Germany through initiatives like the African Women’s Cup and other planned events. Everyone is cordially invited to join in the fun, enjoy the games, and engage in cross-cultural interactions.


Essentially, the goal of the Skyline Soccer Festivals is to use sports to inspire and represent unity. Frankfurt is preparing to host the world for Euro 2024, but it is also preparing for a major display of social harmony and inclusivity. With football as the focal point, the occasion promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that captures the genuine spirit of community and enthusiasm for the game.
