Two National Associations (Azerbaijan and France) have joined the FAI in being part of the project.

"UEFA through it’s National Governance and Global Institutions Unit is delighted to support the Horizon 2020 project ‘GREENFOOT’. This project will help the Football Association of Ireland and many more bodies, including the Azerbaijan Football Association and the French Football Federation, to improve energy use and in turn help fight climate change" UEFA's Head of the National Governance and Global Institutions Unit, Luca Nicola told FAI.ie.

"We wish to congratulate the work done to date and look forward to the project developing in the near future.”

Working within the GREENFOOT project helps tackle the Association’s reduction of CO2 production within our HQ building", FAI Head of Facility Development Walter Holleran told FAI.ie
