Football Federation of the Kyrgyz Republic will arrange a girls’ football festival in memory of the victims of traditional bride kidnapping, which women in Kyrgyzstan still suffer in cases when they have jealous admirers aiming to force them into marriage. Girls from disadvantaged backgrounds will set a sign for integrative football regardless of background, income, religion, race, origin, gender or sexuality. It is also a networking event for influencers, celebrities, media representatives, parliamentarians, entrepreneurs, coaches, athletes, activists, football supporters and volunteers.
