This week we focus a little extra on the girls and call for more registrations from the girls teams!

Within the Stockholm Football Cup, we strive for an even distribution between girls and boys teams Now we would like to see the number of registrations from girls teams increase! Therefore, we will focus a little extra on the girls this week, partly to boost and inspire all the football girls out there, but also to call for more registrations from the girls teams.

If you represent a girls team and your team has not yet decided which summer cup to go to, then you are warmly welcome to register to SFC. Not only will you have a fantastic cup experience this summer, you are also involved and representatives of a big international cup that highlights girls and strives for an even distribution of teams!

If you instead represent a boys team, we encourage you to talk to your club's girls' teams to go to the cup together. We can guarantee that it will enhance the cup experience, as well as strengthen both the teams' and the club's community in the future!


We are many people in the cup organization who work to ensure that you have a fantastic cup summer 2022. Here are some of us girls who represent SFC:

How did your interest in football begin?
My interest in football began as a four-year-old in the small club FC Näckan in northern Stockholm. The reason I started so early was probably influenced by the fact that my older brother played and that my mother has a background as a football player. Football became an obvious choice for me and was absolutely the only thing I wanted to practice.

Why do you want to be part of SFC and arranging an international football cup in Stockholm?
I am passionate about everything that football provides, both on the pitch but specifically everything around it. So when I got the chance of working with SFC and be part of the feelings, experiences and memories you get from participating in a cup I absolutely can not miss being a part of that.

Do you have a role model in football?
When I was a younger football girl, I looked up to Caroline Seger, but today I probably see all the women in the football movement as my role models.
