[:en]14-24th October, Milan
On the outskirts of Milan, Ladysoccer will organise a women’s football tournament to promote gender equality in sport while kicking out stereotypes, prejudices and discriminations. In Italy, unfortunately, football is still considered a “male sport” affecting the participation of women on the pitch. Hence, a tournament will take place involving more than 100 women, with no skills or previous experience in football required. The main aim is to involve women and let them have fun playing football by showing good practice of inclusive sport that leaves nobody behind. Before, during and after this period a social media campaign about the empowerment of women in football will be promoted on social media using the #FootballPeople weeks hashtag.
