Nikolaj Coster-Waldau with Eir Soccer’s Global Goals ball yesterday at UNDP.

Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau made his name in the 1994 thriller Nightwatch and numerous other screen roles before his major break as golden-boy knight Jaime Lannister, a.k.a. the Kingslayer, on HBO’s Game Of Thrones.

The Global Goals World Cup is an open women’s amateur soccer tournament designed to expand the scope of a conventional sport event and draw on the perspectives of creatives, academics, and activists, to merge true global citizenship with the game of soccer. To qualify, teams have to play and take action for one of their favorite 17 UN Global Goals.

The Global Goals World Cup is powered by Eir Soccer and UNDP – who are proudly supported by Social Good Summit, Save the Children and The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Watch the images from our Do Democracy tournament on our Facebook and Flickr sites. (See all our social sites here). The Do Democracy event celebrated the 100 year anniversary of women’s right to vote. Amazing street party.

Before every game, the two teams had to decide jointly which rules to play by. Great fun. Great way of honoring democracy.

A trip to London

So the winners of The Most Sensational Team 2013, 9kg dynamit,  sent us some pictures and a little story about the use of their prize – An extended weekend to London.

“Finally the extended weekend came where we were going to London to hear The Weeknd and Drake. The hotel, which was very central, was top dollar and the weather was very spring-like. So we spent a lot of time in the inner city shopping and strolling , where we got to see some of London’s tourist attractions. Most importantly, we visited some of London’s bars and tasted some delicious pints. Sunday is worth mentioning, when we went to see Real Madrid vs Barcelona at one of London’s largest sports bars . The atmosphere was really great , and our pints were quickly replaced with pitchers. It was also that night the next Sensational Football tournament was discussed , and we have learned that the best ideas come with beer in the blood – we will be back with force!

On the concert day, we chose a slightly alternative transport to the O2 Concert Hall. We took a boat and we charmed the boat’s crew enough to get a tour by the ship’s mate. And we also conned them into believing that we are a little better at football than we really are, and that “It is so nice finally having a day off”, whoops. But we got to the concert, which totally rocks! Thank you for a fantastic trip Sensational Football and Danske Spil – we look forward for this summers tournament and Roskilde with you! ” – 9kg Dynamit

And we look forward to playing with you!

Asylum Cup 2014

Auderød took everybody by surprise and won the CUP. They played amazing ball, and Lume has turned into a Goal scoring machine. My greatest respect to Damsø soccerclub – for creating a talented team spirit and great players. This also ment that this last week after the Camp girls and women in all our refugee camps turned UP to practice, realizing that you have to practice to win. Now all focus is on our next tournament at the Roskilde music festival. A big THANK YOU to Røde Kors, Bestseller, hummel, Nordea, Larsson Familien, Emil Lyders, all players and coaches – You are the best!
