The crew

An amazing group of people have made this project what it its today. They are the core, our family. They quite literally would travel to the end of the world with us. Often volunteering their time and skills. Without them, there would be no Global Goals World Cup. Allow us to introduce:
The Crew

KRISTIAN FOLDAGER chief storyteller. probably a strong candiadate for the "most hours spent filming women's soccer" award. yet his stories are always fresh and scrubbed clean of cliches. We will never own the words to express what he can show in just a few seconds of well cut film.

EMIL LYDERS Chief Image Wizard This is one of the very rare pictures of our man behind the camera. It never feels like an event really happened until we start receiving the We-Transfers with images from Emil!  Somehow he always manages to capture the grace, badassness and unique power of the ggwcup teams.
