“Sport Dans La Ville“ was founded in 1998 in order to promote the social and professional integration of women. For the young women taking part in the organization, playing football means taking a stance: It means having fun together, living together respectfully, and living a self-determined life.
Many of them come from families in which it is far from natural for women to do sports. Girls and women between the age of 12 and 25 meet for team practice every Saturday morning. For the players this is not only the chance to challenge each other, but also an opportunity for exchange. Most of them come from areas fraught with political and social problems. Football offers them an opportunity to widen their horizon and making new experiences. This is also the aim of the tournaments organised by “Sport Dans La Ville” three times every year. The team gives the young women strength to develop their full potential. The players support each other also outside of the football pitch. Together, they do not only participate in cultural events, but also in educational programs.
