The goals of the tournament are to raise awareness about women’s football in the Middle East and to increase media exposure of women’s football in Lebanon and the neighbouring countries.

In order to celebrate the power of female football there will be an international football tournament in Beirut combined with four days of football practice and a workshop programme for young girls (ages 11-18) from different rural areas of Lebanon.

For four days, all the tournament participants will go on tour and travel from Beirut to different rural areas in Lebanon (North-Zgharta, South-Sour, Central North-Jounieh and Central South- Beirut).

In each region, fun football games and educational courses related to football, gender equality and social development will be conducted for girls and women from the respective community.

For the implementation of the project, GFA and DISCOVER FOOTBALL will cooperate with AFDP, Right to Play and One Goal, NGOs active in the field of sport for social development.
