Huge thank you to all those who participated, please keep your eyes peeled for what's next....
A non-profit month-long festival of events dedicated to celebrating and increasing participation in professional and grassroots football for women and non-binary people. With the Fifa Women’s World Cup at the centre of its raising profile, this summer offers a crucial opportunity to alter the perception of the women’s game, which is still too often underestimated by traditional assumptions and mainstream representations. By publicly screening every fixture of the World Cup in a number of London venues, top international football will be showcased and given the intensified audience that it deserves.
Surrounding the promotion of professional women’s football, a carefully curated series of public events will serve as a spotlight and exploration into women’s and non-binary people’s football from grassroots to professional. Through a range of sporting events, panel discussions, creative showcases, comedy, film screenings and panel discussions, the Festival is dedicated to providing space to celebrate the victories, honour the struggles and tell the stories of women and non-binary people in the beautiful game.
While we cheer on footballers at the top of their game competing in France, and showcase London teams of all ages that have been at the forefront of the thriving grassroots movement, the Festival is committed to bringing people and communities together to share our love for football and our commitment to wider social change.
