Event Details & Reservation

After the first world war, women’s football drew large crowds before the sport was banned by the Football Association. In 1921, in an act of spitefulness, women were banned from playing football on the FA’s grounds.

The game wasn’t suited to women, it said. And there was concern that not all the money raised from the massive gates was going to charity. After all, how dare women get paid for playing football?

In an effort to learn more about sport that lies at the root of Karachi United’s mission, join us to watch Clare Balding’s documentary on the lost history of the game. The effects of the ban are still felt today, even amidst Pakistan’s football industry, and provide insight about the power of sport.
