Aiming to inspire the next generation of female footballers, #SameGoals pledges to deliver a special limited-edition football provided by PUMA to every girl who shares a video showing them scoring – or saving – a goal to grow her passion and help her focus on achieving her dreams.
To receive their free ball, girls need to post a video on Twitter, Instagram or TikTok that shows them scoring – or saving – a goal using #SameGoals. The goal can be scored, or saved, anywhere using any kind of ball; the more creative, the better.*
Alternatively, participants can upload their video at mancity.com/samegoals.
In addition to the social media movement at the event’s core, previous years have seen City host coaching clinics with players in their hometowns, hold football festivals and grassroots tournaments at the City Football Academy and lead matchday activations promoting the initiative.
As part of the 2021 campaign meanwhile and embracing the virtual world of the past year amidst the coronavirus pandemic, City will be hosting a series of free online workshops focused on women’s football, with a variety of professionals across the Club taking to the hotseat.
The series will cover business and management perspectives as well as coaching and technical tips, with the likes of Head Coach Gareth Taylor, Managing Director Gavin Makel and first team players Caroline Weir, Esme Morgan and Sam Mewis just a handful of the names offering their support.
With limited capacity, the workshops are aimed at anyone interested in the football industry or grassroots game on a first-come, first-served basis as City continue their pledge and commitment to keep growing the game.
Attendees will be required to register in advance to attend the workshops, with registration opening on Monday 15th February via www.mancity.com/samegoals.
The hour-long sessions will include an opportunity for attendees to submit their own questions to the panellists.
Also new for 2021, all who take part in the #SameGoals campaign will have access to money-can’t-buy competitions including the opportunity for seven teams to win a personalised Ultimate PUMA Team Bundle Team Package including full kits, footballs, equipment and bibs.
