We are thrilled to announce Basketball as a new edition to the Global Goals World Cup concept.
During the first GGWCUP Saudi Arabia in 2021, players from different community sports groups and basketball teams and referees participated in the tournament. They were amazed by the power of the point system, the football team’s energy and actions for the Global Goals.
Saudi Sport For All Federation continues their commitment of enabling and empowering women across the Kingdom through sports and are thrilled to announce the first ever edition of basketball within GGWCUP Saudi Arabia 2022.

The basketball tournament design is similar to the football tournament design and integrates the GGWCUP point system. The Teams interested in participating must choose one of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the theme they will highlight through the creation of a community initiative by choosing one of the 17 United Nations’ Global Goals.
