In the Community stage, neighborhoods that have been at the forefront of the organization begin a process of self-management.

"What the foundation seeks with its Communities is that after a certain time the neighborhood will be empowered, incorporate the methodology, and then reproduce it themselves, take the program autonomously," commented Gabriel Morales, Regional Football Coordinator More in the region of Tarapacá.

"I have learned to work in a team, to know other neighborhoods, to see the needs they have, and to exchange ideas. I'm leaving with a beautiful learning, "he commented Ester Gin, of the Cancha O'Higgins, Antofagasta

"I've been in Fútbol Más for 10 years, but this year we started to work as a Community, so we're a little more autonomous, but we've already implemented ideas that come from ourselves," he said. Magdalena of the Cancha Molino I, Santiago

"Year after year we have been growing and finding new ideas to develop. For us, Fútbol Más is very important in the village, because we were able to open spaces that were taken, and now they are occupied for the sport, "he said. José Rojas of the José María Caro court in Santiago.
