Committed clubs from Kreuzberg offer female football fans from neighbourhood access to the game and open spaces for exchange. Already for the third time we brought girls from different schools of Kreuzberg together. With this special football camp Seitenwechsel e.V. with the support of DISCOVER FOOTBALL accomplished some important pioneering work, as girl´s still have difficulties to access traditional sport opportunities.

Focus were on beyond borders as well. Girls were mixed in different teams and got to know girls from the neighborhood. Football practice, art work for a banner expressing their thoughts on football and why they are playing football have been part of the camp. We wanted to provide liminal experiences and show how reality in football look like today.
