Giannis Antetokounmpo has won the MVP honors and the NBA championship already in his career but his work on the floor isn’t the only thing that makes him great. It’s his activities off the court as well.

The Antetokounmpo family experienced many difficulties in life but managed to overcome them and Giannis has decided to help others do so as well. He wants to help children in need, showing them that sport is a source of life and that through hard work everything is possible.

The AntetokounBros Academy is the realization of this vision, which takes place with the contribution of Nike, the Onassis Foundation, and Eurohoops.

And the AntetokounBros Academy is more than just a basketball academy.

It is a place for children from different social and economic backgrounds, which enables them to develop their skills through sports. It is a place where girls and boys, regardless of color, origin and religion, have the same opportunities for development. A place that encourages children to follow their passion. It is a place where every child can feel like a family.

“It doesn’t matter where you start because when you play to lift your people, no hoop is too high.”

The highlight of AntetokounBros Academy was the visit of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

He returned to where he started, in the open courts, to meet the kids for whom the AntetokounBros Academy was created.
