Global Goals World Cup

We turned the UN 17 Global Goals into a sport and created the first women's activist football tournament: the GGWCup.

by Eir Soccer & partners


GGWCup is an alternative 5v5 global football tournament
for women with alternative ideas to help people and planet to flourish.

Guided by the Global Goals we invite women from all walks of life, across all regions of the world onto the field and advocate for the Goal that is most invigorating for them, for their families, and community. The all-women teams qualify to play by advocating for one Goal and showcase concrete ideas and examples on how they will undertake the action and achieve impact.

We invite you to join the game and level the playing field for everyone by putting the power of sports behind the Global Goals also known as the United Nation’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
