• The ability to set goals, to show up and give
    your best to find out where your talents can take you
    is one of the greatest gifts we have.

    Accomplishment
  • We build friendships and
    strive further than we could ever
    accomplish or enjoy alone.

    Teamwork
  • Soccer teaches life skills to come back
    from all of the roadblocks our journey’s encounter.
    It gives girls and boys a sense of purpose.

    Perseverence
  • A soccer ball inspires happiness,
    creativity and friendships.
    The Women’s World Cup
    sends a positive global message
    that girls are capable and important.

    Freedom
  • The World Cup brings
    glimmers of hope to those who are
    silenced and an awareness
    or potential awakening to
    those who force the controls.

    Equity
  • Girls and women are often victims.
    They have less access to get out
    of desperate situations.
    Soccer can radically change
    their sense of self worth and focus.

Creating Changes On & Off the Field

Welcome to Equal Play. You don't have to be a soccer fan to see the importance of girls and women being treated fairly on a global scale. We invite you to visit through our pages to become more aware of the obstacles girls face that most people take for granted as normal in our own back yards and abroad. We also encourage you to make a difference by questioning and orchestrating changes in your own neighbourhoods. Join our campaign by passing on our message, encouraging equity and donating or sponsoring programs that will open opportunities for girls and women in all aspects of their lives.
