GGWCup Bangkok 2019

For the second time NIST and Chelsea Foundation hosted a two-day football festival with games, conversation and community action: On Saturday sixteen teams of women participated in the GGWCup Bangkok, and on Sunday boys and girls teams participated in the under-11 #GGWCup Bangkok.

PlayOnside won, followed by Pink Falcons. PlayOnside are from North Thailand, close to Burma, where the team, a group of teachers, promote gender equality to the Burmese community. Most of the players had never been to Bangkok- so we weren’t the only tourists in town. Pink Falcons, a group of mothers of students from NIST International School, have been speaking up about air pollution with their #bringbackbluesky campaign - for a cleaner future - and we promise to keep bringing up clean air in our conversations when we play around the world. As for the first ever Youths Global Goals World Cup 2019 in Bangkok, Congratulations to newly minted champions NIST Falcons (Girls) and Pattaya Academy FC (Boys).

 We would like to thank you: NIST International School, Chelsea Foundation, UNDP, Global Goals Advocates, SAP Next-Gen, Project Everyone, the Danish Embassy in Thailand, Little Sun, Global Citizen.

GGWCup Johannesburg 2018

WE HAVE FOUR NEW GLOBAL GOALS CHAMPION TEAMS! We made it through to the semifinals playing outside. Then we got hit by massive thunderstorms. We could not continue, so we jumped into safety in the big tents set up for shade and decided the last 4 teams would be combined winners because that was the best symbol of the day, a beautiful #togetherness day. This means Global Goals World Cup Johannesburg has 4 winners that will all be going to the Global Citizen Festival December 2nd. Congratulations to Madiba Youth org., Kromdraai Girls, Team Dedela and The Soccer Divas Club, Mombasa. You are amazing superstars.

We also honored 2 other teams for their endless support and love for the game. Look out for these young women: Skateistan SA and Nirvana - amazing rolemodels and new leaders. #BeTheGeneration Massive thank you to all partners, volunteers and players.

 
 
 

GGWCup New York Finals 2018

We are still smiling from the amazing day on the 48th floor, playing football for the world we want.
The two finalist teams - @goleadoras & @sandiegosoccerwomen - were both truly deserving, but Goleadoras took the trophy. They entered the tournament ranked number one on engaging the crowd, top five on action and on the day, their creative style and football skills took them all the way. They even brought their own backup dancers!!
We wish these inspiring young women all the best in their future endeavours to realise their full potential as community leaders, and gender equality advocates.
Congratulations to all the fantastic teams. And a huge thank you to all our beautiful partners and volunteers who made this day spectacular.

Dani, Khady and Leah from Global Citizen joined us and talked to players and guests about earning tickets for the Global Citizen Festival. Read the piece Leah Rodriguez from the sky high soccer Finals.
