On the weekend of May 17 to 19, what had started as a simple idea between three members of the Shenzhen Red Star Football Club became a reality when the 1st International Women’s Soccer Tournament was held in Shenzhen.
As the hot spring sun beat down on the fields at Soccer World in Shuiwan, women from all over the world competed. They fought for every tackle and chased down every ball, as well as got to know each other when bonding between games.
The tournament was made possible thanks to the support of the team’s sponsors, The Terrace and Echo Water. These generous donors value women’s sports and understand the importance of supporting local teams. In 2018, they joined forces with local soccer team Shenzhen Red StarFC and became the major sponsors for the 1st International Women’s Soccer Tournament.
Eight teams from Shanghai, Xiamen, Macao, and Shenzhen participated. Over the course of two days, more than 90 players from countries from all over the world joined together in their passion to play soccer.
The winners were the Shanghai Women’s International Football Club A, the runners up were local team Mulan, and third place went to Shenzhen Red Star FC.
The event was such a success that the organizer and sponsors have already teamed up and started to organize next year’s edition. See you all next year in May 2020. In the meantime, Shenzhen Red Star FC will be heading to Thailand in November for the Phuket 7-a-side International Tournament.
