DREAM - INSPIRE - EMPOWER

Football, like cinema, is full of stories and legends, although some are known from the moment they happen, and others take years to be heard.

For this reason, Changing the Game presents unreleased stories of legends that, until now, had not been told. Stories with female protagonists that have changed the rules of this sport and will inspire millions of people.

Our heroines fight every day for their dream, making their path where there was no way and kicking the ball harder to prove that football is also women's business; overcoming outdated and un baseless stereotypes.

Because football is passion, dedication and self-improvement; and, as women, we know plenty about that!
