The Football World on the Peace Square

The AS Trenčín net one of the most popular attractions of the Clown Day

The Saturday’s noon in Trenčín belonged mainly to children. It has been the fifth time that the busy Peace Square was “privatized” by the organizers of the “Clown Day” benefit. As in the last year, AS Trenčín cooperated on this charitable event. One of the nine stations on the square where children could obtain stamps serving as a means of payment for drawings and other children’s works belonged to us.

Football players set their camp next to the entrance to the town hall. A group of young AS Trenčín players supervised over the children of all ages. The task of the contestants was to score. It was not so simple though. The goal was covered by a sheet with just five holes. The ball could only get in through them. The lines of the future football players were still longer. Girls, boys, little and taller ones, even the clowns themselves participated in the competition. Everyone wanted to win a prize. All of the participants finally got the sweets and the football albums for stickers. This interesting football competition belonged to one of the most popular attractions of the sunny Saturday.

The “Clown Day” is a charitable event serving for a promotion of the Dr. Clown Fund. Also this year similarly to the previous years a considerable amount of money was raised. This fund finances theatrical shows for the children who, from the various reasons, are forced to spend part of their childhood separated from their parents – first of all mentally disabled children living in specialized centers but also children in hospitals and other medical institutions all over Slovakia where the clown doctors visit them.

A part of this traditional event is every year an attempt to break one of the children records. The task for the visitors this year was to create the most numerous living chain of children and toys. At the beginning, the littlest ones were not very eager to participate but thanks to the active help of the funny clowns their shyness was soon gone. The chain consisting of children was still longer and longer. When Igor Svítok from the agency Slovak Records announced the final number 512, the attending clowns fell on their back because the children on the Peace Square succeeded in breaking the current record from the year 2004.
