Global Goals World Cup Finals

Sport meets advocacy in this highly entertaining Street Soccer event where twenty four teams of inspiring women from five continents compete to win the Five-a-Side Global Goals World Cup trophy. To qualify, each team has led a campaign of advocacy and action for their favorite UN Global Goal, and they compete by a unique set of rules that decides games based on action, mobilization, style and soccer skills. Celebrity referees, DJ’s and high level addresses are mixed in with the fast paced games.

GAIN was one of the sponsors of the event.
