At this year’s festival we want to do more than just broach the issue of overcoming barriers tied to social gender, sexual orientation, ethnic or religious affiliation or ascription, and physical abilities. Above all we want to overcome concrete language and geographic barriers, and create the basis for an exchange that will be physically felt.

Therefore, the teams, coaches, and individual activists will be divided up into new mixed teams. With this, players from China and Tibet, Brazil and Argentina, South Africa and Serbia, and Cambodia and Kenya can build teams. With names referring to the different grounds that women play on, the teams will be coached by a mixed coach duo that will also attend a Coaches-Workshop all week. In this way, DISCOVER FOOTBALL is just the moderators of a process of overcoming barriers that will be shaped by its participants.
