How to enter your GGWCup team?
In this tournament where sports meet activism you as a player and all the participants needs to be more than just athletes and sport fans. Because if we are to reach the Global Goals by 2030, we need to release all of our creative and innovative energy from this generation. After each game we give each team four point:
1 for most goals scored - 1 for most supporting crowd - 1 for most original team style - 1 for best action for the Goals.
Therefore, when you sign-up your team, we will ask you to pick your team’s Global Goals and how you plan to take action for your goal.
We recommend you read this page with tips and helpful information for your registration.
And remember; football skills are optional - action is mandatory.
In order to change the world we changed the rules
A panel of capable judges will after each game give each team four points:
