WHY WE PLAY

Our tournaments are as much about enjoying sport as they are about bringing all kinds of amazing women together to meet, play and make some noise for the world we want. Since 2016 Global Goals World Cup events around the world have brought adolescent girls and women together with stakeholders from all parts of society to form plans, actions and partnerships to achieve the 17 Sustainable Goals
