What is Live Your Goals?
The Live Your Goals campaign targets and inspires more girls and women to play football. The campaign was launched at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011™ and has evolved into one of FIFA’s most recognised initiatives in women’s football.
The Live Your Goals campaign is part of FIFA’s long-term commitment to support women’s football worldwide.
Live Your Goals – objectives
Live Your Goals seeks to promote and attract girls and women to play football and to help member associations strengthen the image of women’s football in their countries. It is a communication and promotional campaign, a development programme for member associations and a great platform from which to communicate and talk about women and girls playing football.
- Increase participation of women and girls in football
