The SFA is excited to host the second edition of the Global Goals World Cup (GGWCUP) in Saudi Arabia, encouraging women across the country to participate in sports and boosting the community’s overall health. GGWCUP is described as the ‘social good world cup,’ featuring all-women community-level teams from around the world – united by a drive to create meaningful social impact and a love of physical activity. The initiative uses the power of sport to take action on the UN’s 17 SDGs, motivated by a love of the sport and the desire to improve local communities.

Global Goals Q&A
Launched in 2015, GGWCUP is described as the ‘social good world cup’, featuring all-women community-level teams from around the world – united by a drive to create meaningful social impact and a love of physical activity. The initiative uses the power of sport to take action on the UN’s 17 SDGs; motivated by a love of the game and the desire to improve local communities.
Currently, you can only register as a team. Encourage your friends and family to join you for a unique experience. Women of all athletic abilities are invited to participate in the GGWCUP
Each game is six minutes and each team will play a minimum of three games before the semifinals and the final.
My team is composed of women who have never played football. How is it going to go when they have to play against teams with experienced footballers? How can we make sure they can still compete against these types of teams?
Some teams will have football experience, some will not have any experience at all – and that’s part of the game when playing in a GGWCup. It’s also why winning a game only counts ¼ of the points given
We welcome all residents of Saudi Arabia and GCC countries to register for the GGWCUP
You will be scored on 4 elements: Your community service initiatives, crowd engagement, costumes, and football scores during the tournament (Click here to learn more)
The finals will be hosted in Jeddah later this fall
The Global Goals are also known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In September 2015 World Leaders committed to the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development to work toward a better world for everyone.
