Under the this year's motto "Fair Play," the DISCOVER FOOTBALL Festival 2019 took place at the Willy Kressmann Stadium in Berlin from July 29 to August 4, 2019. Over 100 footballers from 22 countries, among others Iran, Nepal, Cameroon, Bolivia and Serbia were invited to Berlin, who are actively involved in women's football and / or women's rights.
Consisting of a friendly tournament, competence-building trainings and workshops on the subject of "Fair Play," the main focus of the event was on the football as a tool for women's empowerment. The tournament was played in newly mixed teams to promote active exchanges across national, cultural, religious and language barriers.
