While it’s estimated that 30 million women and girls play football around the world, the reality is that significant financial and cultural barriers still limit participation.
This week in Lyon, football players, coaches and referees from more than 50 countries are spending their days at @equalplayingfieldinitiative ’s Festival of Football, where they have access to workshops, skills and coaching sessions. Equipping them with skills is one part of driving change - so that they can return to their communities feeling empowered to take action and level the playing field themselves.
Head to @adidasWomen to see more around this initiative.
