Big welcome to coach Shabnam Ruhin and her team, Girl Power!

Girl Power's mission is "to use the power of sport and movement to empower and improve inclusion and social participation of women and girls."

Shabnam Ruhin is one of the EU Ambassador Coaches selected as part of our overall project GGWCup Europe. Learn more about the special ErasmusPlus project here and read more about Shabnam here

See you on the pitch in Copenhagen May 14!


Team Girl Power will be playing for Goal 4: Quality Education.

The players on team Girl Power have all "faced a discrimination of some sort". For example they have been experiencing difficulties in finding a job when wearing the hijab, or on the contrary, have been feeling like the “outsider” of the family because of not wearing the hijab and having short hair and playing football.
