Summary

Feminist Football Club "La Nuestra" aims to guarantee an owned space for women and people from the LGBTIQ collective in sports and culture. La Nuestra maintains its practice dedicated to football played by women and diversities in Villa 31, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The practice links training days with group spaces where sport becomes an area of containment, reflection and expression for those who participate.

Challenge

Since its inception, La Nuestra has become one of the few spaces in Villa 31 for football played by women and diversities, which uninterruptedly holds its training twice a week with a coaching staff made up entirely of women National Technical Directors, coaches and popular educators. Together with all the players make up the group of more than 200 women who, from the age of 6 and without age limit, seek to guarantee the right to play.

Solution

In the face of patriarchal and capitalist practices that deny/ignore our existence; we embody it, we build links, and we bet on the collective process ourselves and with others, inside and outside our field. As a collective, we are interested in sustaining a sports and cultural practice that, from a territorial anchor and from a gender perspective, favours the development of singular and collective strategies for the empowerment of players.

Long-Term Impact

Organizing a club led and driven by women, girls and LGBTIQ + people open and built by the community that comes to repair the historical absence of spaces for recreation and well-being for villa 31 and develop the leadership of the players and teammates who inhabit and kick the territory, thus guaranteeing access to space and the possibility of building ownership by exercising the right to physical and cultural activity.
