The Story

Equal Playing Field (EPF) has found a new challenge: the Jordan Quest 2018.

EPF is using the momentum it gained from its Altitude Football Project and Guinness World Record highest elevation football (soccer) game in history– played  on top of Mount Kilimanjaro in June 2017 - to deliver a new challenge centred on promoting women's football and development in Jordan and Asia in spring 2018 - and set its NEXT WORLD RECORD at the Dead Sea in Jordan. 

EPF will work with local and international partners to deliver football and empowerment camps in the 7 countries in Asia sending teams to Jordan for the AFC Women's Asian Cup (China, Japan, Australia, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, and South Korea) - to support and highlight the development of women's football in those countries and to promote the AFC Women's Asian Cup at the grassroots level. 

Then, in March 2018, an EPF team of players, coaches, referees and leaders made up of women from across the Middle East and Asia, and from our Kilimanjaro challenge will travel across Jordan playing exhibition matches and running football and empowerment camps for girls and women in local communities - promoting the game and the AFC Women's Asian Cup at both local and international levels. 

Finally, the EPF team will play its next world record game at the Dead Sea - and in doing so set both the highest and lowest games in history within the same year. The game will also launch the start of the AFC Women's Asia Cup. 

Help us to deliver this quest - for female athletes in Jordan and the wider Asia region, and to inspire the next generation of change makers through sport.

Equal Playing Field is a grassroots non-profit initiative to challenge gender inequality in sport and to support women's football development at the grassroots and elite levels, especially in marginalised country contexts. It does this through taking on international adventure and world record challenges to play extraordinary games; delivering football, leadership and empowerment camps for girls and women around the world; and through EPF's global media and advocacy platform. 

More than anything EPF is about love of the game.
Having the opportunity to play, as long as you want to, at as high a level as you are capable of, no matter who or where you are. Football and sports have long been a means to transcend limitations and prejudice, so this is our way to challenge the inequality and to inspire more women to do the same.

Opportunity, equality, respect. Nothing more, nothing less.

The EPF Jordan Team was lucky to play the Afghanistan Women's National team during their training tour in Jordan last month, and we are psyched that one of the Afghan players will be returning to join us for the Quest to help tell the story of her team and the women building it together.
