GLOBAL GOALS WORLD CUP

GGWCup NYC 2019

GGWCup Finals NYC September 25th

For the 4th time in a row we will play in New York City to celebrate the power of sport for the Global Goals during the UN General Assembly Week

GOLEADORAS TOOK THE NYC #GGWCup 2018 TITLE! We are still smiling from the amazing day on the 48th floor, playing football for the world we want. The two finalist teams - Goleadoras & San Diego Soccer Women PLAY - were both truly deserving, but Goleadoras took the trophy.

You are invited to join the celebration. And we have a lot to celebrate this year: 4,000 women have played since 2016 and have produced more than 22,500 actions for the Goals - some have even changed laws. 

We will transform the SAP Next-Gen’s breathtaking event space on the 48th floor into a skyhigh football pitch overlooking Manhattan.

Host GGWCup, UNDP & SAP Next-Gen
Date September 25th from noon to 8PM and chill after-party
Venue SAP Next-Gen - 48th floor

Alongside the games we will feature Global Goals House Panel discussions and a photo exhibition sharing the team’s actions and Goals.

It is free to play in New York City, but the number of team spots are limited.

 
Some of the goals are so big: End poverty, combat climate change. None of us can do this on our own, but all of us together can make a real difference.
— Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, actor, GGWCup referee, and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador.
