Stories From the Road || Bangalore

In addition to our two World Record matches, we also regularly host football camps that deliver training in sport, empowerment and leadership in partnership with existing local teams and organizations that focus on sports development, education, health, community, and empowerment for girls and women. Check out some highlights from our latest camp below!

February 27: Bangalore, India

We were very excited to team up with Pass Collective and Shining Stars FC to host the AFC Women’s Day Equal Playing Field Football Festival.

Pass Collective is a social enterprise whose strives to nurture inclusive development and social equity through creative intelligence. Their work supports the Shining Stars Football Club and their mission to empower young people through football.

We were fortunate to link up with their founder, Shaona who coordinated the festival alongside the Karnakata State Football Association to honor AIFF’s (All Indian Football Federation) celebration of AFC’s Women’s Day. It was a natural fit!

On the pitch, players had the opportunity to develop agility, fitness and football skills with top level coaches.
