Football Cinema at the FIFA Museum presents the incredible story of a group of women from West Germany who travelled to Taipei to play in a football tournament and subsequently changed the future of women’s football in West Germany.
In 1981 the Women’s World Invitational tournament was held in Taiwan. At the time, women’s football was more tolerated than supported by the DFB. Because West Germany did not yet have a national team, the team of SSG Bergisch Gladbach 09 were sent and, despite pitiful conditions, caused for a surprise that would change the future of the sport in Germany.
