GOAL CLICK: “PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH DELVE INTO PLAYERS’ LIVES”
30 January 2020
Our new photographic exhibition goes behind-the-scenes with stars of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Goal Click: Women’s Football In 2019 has just opened runs until 15 May 2020.
Some of the greatest players in the world told the story of their football lives ahead of the tournament - all using disposable cameras and their own words.
Goal Click documented the journey to the Women’s World Cup through the photographic stories of internationals, professionals and grassroots players from around the world.
Two images taken by England stars feature in the exhibition: Lucy Bronze’s photograph of Lyon players celebrating reaching the Champions League Final and Beth Mead’s shot of Arsenal team mates at the training ground.
Belinda Scarlett, National Football Museum curator said: “We’re really excited to present this exhibition as it features some amazing behind-the-scenes photographs from the players’ perspective taken in the build-up and during last summer’s game-changing Women’s World Cup.
“Visitors will see photographs that really delve into their lives. They are accompanied by personal stories which show the players’ determination and the bonds and friendships they have as a group.
“Having fun is a constant theme and the end result illustrates the progress that the women’s game is making while also showing that more needs to be done to tackle inequality in the game.”
Matthew Barrett, Founder of Goal Click, said: “2019 will forever be seen as a hugely important year in the development of women’s football around the world. We wanted to tell an intimate, behind-the-scenes story of the women’s game, from elite Women’s World Cup superstars all the way through to the grassroots."
