To add a bit stride, a lucky bunch of 50 school children from Drancy, in the northern Parisian suburbs, was able to spend some time with the international football player, Edouard Mendy.

“I think we’re in a generation where kids are very connected, but often they’re poorly connected because there are a lot of cartoons, games that don’t necessarily teach them anything, so this video game is a very good mix between entertainment and learning and it enriches our kids and it’s something that we have to harness.”, explains Edouard Mendy, Chelsea and Senegal goalkeeper.

The admired player who helped Senegal lift its first African Cup of Nations this year also financially invested in the development of PowerZ.

The Father of two young boys aged four and six also says he fell in love with its concept because it is free, or rather “free-to-pay“ as those who install it are free to pay what they want or can.

“I am very involved in this project: for me, children are the future, education is the foundation, we can link the two.”, says Mendy.

And then the second thing which we see here at this event but that I saw already from the start, when we talk to the children, the fact that he is a model.” said Freund.

PowerZ designers have reportedly raised 10 million euros for the development of the game internationally.
