What we're about
Calling all women in Detroit who believe in change through female networking, togetherness, and sports. This group is for you.
When you join you will be part of a worldwide network of local women’s groups who meetup to create global change.
My name is Marie Hansen, and I just moved to Detroit from Denmark. I’m one of the organizers of the alternative tournament “Global Goals World Cup” for women and I’m passionate about expanding the Global Goals family by creating a soccer/football club for women here in my new hometown.
The goal with our CLUB is to meet, play and talk. We want to find ways where we together can take action for the Global Goals, the world’s most ambitious “to do list” and we want to play 5 aside football. Why play for the Global Goals? Achieving the Goals means that we have lead the way towards eliminating poverty, creating peace and establishing gender equality.
I will bring balls - you will show up with you playful activist soul wearing sneakers.
I’m a beginner myself with lifelong experience as a spectator. I promise you massive fun and engagement. We will take the field as first-time players, casual teammates, advanced athletes and sideline supporters to unite for a better world at a variety of meetup events.
As much as we love men and children, this group is a women only.
To support our Meetup events we need exciting and appealing sponsors and partners. Our first participant is Detroit City FC. The club was founded by local Detroiters - now they partner with us to achieve our common goals - and when the new fieldhouse opens this fall, we will have an indoor space to meet at. Until then, we will meet outside at a safe and convenient location for everyone.
Welcome to Global Goals World Club in Detroit. See you on the field.
