To participate each team must adopt one of the Global Goals, which are charged with protecting the environment, promoting social justice and gender equality.

To participate each team must adopt one of the Global Goals, which are charged with protecting the environment, promoting social justice and gender equality. The teams are awarded by how they take action for the Goals on and off the field.

The GGWCUP showcase and celebrate all types of women and teams, because their stories will affect change, influence opinion, and give the world a new type of sports role models. We bring players, fans and corporations together for a greener, equitable and more just future and planet for all.

This is how we do it: The GGWCUP in 90 sec.

What are the 17 Global Goals?

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). It's now five years on, and we have more work than ever to do. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change.

Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. Learn more about the 17 Global Goals here.
