Goal Diggers FC

The all female and non-binary football team: Goal Diggers FC, have partnered with Premiere League, Copa90 and Studio PI photographer Jameela Elfaki, (also a passionate footballer) for Budweiser.  

 

The film, directed by Elfaki, tells the story behind the inclusive grassroots football team and highlights the issues that need to be addressed within the sport to make positive change.

 

“The main thing that prevents a lot of women and non-binary people getting into the sport is we need more pitch space. Building more… that would make football better!”

 

GDFC was founded in 2015 to combat the idea that “football is a sport simply for men” and encourage more women and non-binary people to enjoy it.

 

“We wanna create a whole grassroots community that is inclusive - not just our club.That’s such an important part of what we do - growing in a way that doesn’t take up space or opportunities from other teams.”
