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.

We give women a voice on their future

The Global Goals World Cup (GGWCup) is an activist 5v5 football tournament for women. We use sports to achieve gender equality in all the SDGs. The event gives women the power to impact and reach the important Goal in their life and community. To qualify the teams choose one of the 17 UN Global Goals that they will play and take action for. On game day the teams play 6 minute matches and score points for style, crowd engagement, goals scored and advocacy.

The GGWCup is a new type of World Cup creating new types of role models. It is through channelling local action that we revolutionize women's groups globally. We aim to reach women from all walks of life, across all regions of the world by creating an inclusive environment which make both sports and sustainable development accessible to women.

We put women at the center of everything we do. We invite all women onto the pitch to play for the world. And the winners are not the best teams in the world - but for the world.

Let there be play.
