WELCOME TO THE 3rd ANNUAL GLOBAL GOALS WORLD CUP FINAL IN NEW YORK
Last year, the amazing ladies from MTG took the trophy. Who will be the champion soccer activistas of 2018?
It all starts now...
Global Goals World Cup is back!
This year playing Sept 25th
WOMEN OF THE WORLD AND NEW YORK UNITE!
And have some serious fun while doing it.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone
We decided to turn it into a sport.
The Global Goals World Cup is an alternative activist world cup for women from all over the world. It is for everyone! You do not have to be an expereinced soccer player to enter. We have changed the rules, so that taking action, being creative and brining your crowd is just as important as scoring goals.
So are you a passionate about changing your world for the better? Do you know 6 women: Friends/ Teammates/ Co-Workers etc. Who want to play some five-a-side soccer with you? Then you should register as a Team Captain for the Global Goals World Cup. Registration is free, But the number of teams at this championship is limited to max 24. So your currency is Global Goals Action!
Never heard of the Global Goals? Here is a little film to get acquainted.
WHO WE ARE, WHY WE DO THIS, HOW WE PLAY
Hello there. We are Majken & Rikke -The founders of Global Goals World Cup. We run the Danish Sports organisation Eir Soccer, that works to create fun, meaningful and safe soccer events for women of all ages. We started with a crazy dream to build a new World Cup for amateur women, where saving the world was part of the score. We believe sport has the power to give us the energy and courage to take that first important step in the right direction and amazingly have fun and create powerful communities and lifelong friends while doing it. We think the UN Global Goals is the best plan humanity has ever made, and we are committed to help achieve it. We hope you will join us!
So far this dream has grown to 6 tournaments on 4 continents, and counting. We have teamed up with amazing organisations such as UNDP, Save the Children, GAIN and Women Deliver to make sure that we reach women all over the world.
We always hold our Global Final with winning teams from the other tournaments in New York during the UN General Assembly. And we love engaging with the real New Yorkers who live in this great city.
The tournaments are one day events (Afternoon/evening) with short intense games with lots of great conversation in between. Surprise VIP's food and music and cool prizes. We play five-a-side on grass or asphalt. We play by a special 4 point system where style, action and crowd is scored the same as goals: Read everything about the rules in the TEAM MANUAL
