“#NotWomensFootball” is an important symbol for equality”

Three matches. Three wins. 9:0 goal difference. The German national team is riding a wave of success at the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 in England. The road to the final in London is a long one, but the team has been a close unit under coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg and silenced many critics. As the German ladies defeated Finland 3:0 in their final match of the group stage, Volkswagen hosted a panel discussion on the topic of “Equality and diversity in and through sport”. Among those attending were former professional footballers Nadine Keßler and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Insights into the latest developments in football for women, and desires for the future.
