Copa ’71: The Lost Lionesses - Storyville



In August 1971, football teams from England, Argentina, Mexico, France, Denmark and Italy gathered in Mexico City for a watershed tournament. With lavish sponsorship, extensive TV coverage, merchandise on every street corner and over 100,000 roaring fans at the historic Azteca stadium, media outlets treated the players like rock stars.\n\nDespite being one of the most groundbreaking moments in footballing history, most people have never heard of it - because the players were all women.\n\nThis is the extraordinary story of an extraordinary tournament, told through the fearless voices of the women who took part and including recently uncovered and never-seen-before archive footage.\n\nThe tournament was the flame that lit the touchpaper for the explosion of women’s football around the globe and in the UK. It was one of the catalysts that led to the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 final, when England beat Germany 2-1.\n
