Equal Playing Field Initiative’s Festival of Football in Lyon, France will celebrate women and girls in soccer! Events, including a World Record match will take place in Lyon, France June 27th to July 1st during FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The match will be part of a wider Festival of Football with tournaments, workshops on gender equality in sport, training opportunities and a film festival.
We are looking for 3500 players, from every corner of the world to help us break a football World Record in France 2019. We encourage amateurs and professionals alike. We will try to make sure that the game is fairly matched as it goes on, phasing in and out players of different skill sets throughout to make it a good match!
We will play a regular game of 11-a side football on a full-size pitch. However, the game only ends when teams run out of substitutes. To be counted, every player needs to play at least 10 minutes and touch the ball at least once. The game runs non-stop – including through the night. If 3500 players join us in France next year, we estimate the game will last about 5-6 days.
