“We waited all our lives for the stadium to be full.”
Support for women’s football has grown globally—and significantly—in the months following last summer’s tournament, which was broadcast for the first time on national television in Brazil. The result? On November 16, 2019, Corinthians set a record attendance for women’s club football in Brazil when they played in the men’s stadium— a first for the team.
For players like Adriana Silva, and the young girls in São Paulo and across the globe, last summer’s tournament marked a turning point for women’s football. The challenge now, Adriana says, is to keep the momentum going.
“You can't ever give up because the willpower is what leads to change, it’s what's going to break all barriers.”
This is Ripple Effect.
