The Global Goals World Cup is not a regular soccer tournament. 48 female teams of all ages playing for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

We pledged to SDG #5 Gender Equality, because we believe is the most important of the SDG’S. If we can have equality it’ll be easier to fix the rest of the goals. Goleadoras is the opportunity for all the girls everywhere to win. We use soccer as a tool for education, empowerment and for social good.

Every team got points for action for your goal, most supportive crowd, most original team style and goals scored. We entered the tournament ranked number one on engaging the crowd, top five on action and on the day, our creative style and soccer skills took us all the way! The judges and referees, Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg, Haakon Crown Prince of Norway, and Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau among others, also participated in panels about the importance of the SDGS, and how they would make a better world.

The team Goleadoras ended up competing in the final against San Diego Soccer Women team and we won the trophy! a custom made piece by Artist Olafur Eliasson.

We had the pleasure to have the fantastic participation of The Marching Cobras of New York at the end. As always full of energy and the perfect closing for the tournament.
