29th June – 8th July 2019

Lyon, France

This summer, in parallel to the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019, Festival 19 will take place in Lyon, France, from 29th June to 8th July. The event will bring together disadvantaged young people from across the globe to champion football’s unique power in advancing our push towards achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. The festival will be hosted by local organisation Sport Dans la Ville and jointly organised by Sport dans la Ville and streetfootballworld.
 
Festival 19 will explore the contributions of the field of football for good to the promotion of gender equality on and off the pitch and take participants on an inspiring ten day journey of cross-cultural exchange, empowering girls and young women to take on leadership roles in their communities and raise awareness for the collective need of an equal game for an equal world.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY

Growing up in a country, where football is considered a 'male thing', practicing it has made me believe that I could and should do what makes me happy! It has taught me to stand for what I believe and I see it as a very important tool for female empowerment
