For the first time, the Association of Social Responsibility welcomes you to a football tournament for the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Prague, City of a Hundred Spires, a part of the UNESCO heritage and one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The kick-off event of Global Goals World Cup Prague is going to be held on March 8, 2019, the International Women's Day 2019. Team sign-up will be open for women who are 18 or older. Make sure you register your team on time. To be able to register, each team needs to pick one of the 17 Global Goals to advocate.

The Global Goals World Cup in Prague is a part of the third year of the SDGs Awards, prestigious awards organised by the Association of Social Responsibility with support of the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Regional Development of the Czech Republic. The SDGs Awards are annually given to companies, NGOs and public institutions which are pioneers of sustainability in Czechia. The winners are acknowledged for incorporating the idea of sustainable development into their strategies and thus helping Czechia and the international community to attain a more sustainable future.

The GGWCup is the first activist world cup for women

We are proud to bring this unique football tournament to Czechia! By organizing the Global Goals World Cup, the Association of Social Responsibility would like to achieve the following goals:

  • to empower women in their activities to promote women’s rights

  • to activate support for gender themes in the Czech society

  • to involve Czech public personalities in the global goals agenda

  • to fulfil the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Global Goals World Cup is not a usual tournament. In this 5v5 tournament where sports meet activism the participants need to be more than just athletes and sport fans.

„Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair.“

Soccer skills are optional, but passion for sustainable development and SDGs is mandatory

Watch this video to get inspired by some of the teams who played in the GGWCup Finals in New York 2018. After each game each team gets four points. Crowd engagement, taking action for the SDGs as well as your original team style is counted as your score points for change.

And remember, this tournament is all about being a more responsible human.
