Women's Rights and Football Festival

Discover Football is inviting teams in India to this year's Women's Rights and Women's Football event.


Sat, 08/05/2017 to Sun, 08/13/2017


Duler Stadium
Mapusa Goa

Comprising a friendly tournament as well as topic-related workshops and skills-building trainings, the event focuses on football as a tool for addressing discrimination against women and girls and fight for empowerment and gender equality. We use football to strengthen mutual solidarity to fight for women's rights / sexual and reproductive health rights and for a more inclusive football. Let's make football a home for EVERY girl and woman!

Therefore, we invite women teams from India to apply for participation in the festival.

The main goals of the event are to share our experiences and bring together women from different backgrounds, to learn from each other and build a strong network. To foster the exchange and stress the idea of overcoming cultural, religious and language barriers, the tournament will be played by mixed teams put together from the pool of chosen teams.

The application deadline is Sunday, 18 June 2017.
