Equality Through Football
The International Gay & Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA) was founded in 1992 in order to help promote and foster the growth of LGTBQ football world wide. Since IGLFA’s creation, more than 100 teams/clubs representing over 30 countries have joined and participated at IGLFA competitions. Each of these teams/clubs have played a vital role in helping IGLFA accomplish its goals and uphold its mission.
In recent years the IGLFA has shifted its focus from organizing an annual IGLFA World Championship, to one which provides assistance to organizing boards of national and international tournaments and events.
While partnering with the organizers of these events, the IGLFA provides support and aide to maintain the highest level of competition for our members.
The IGLFA works alongside tournament and event coordinators to assist in providing the best experience for our members at each tournament and event.
The IGLFA has and always will strive to support, nuture and improve any and all LGBTQ football organizations throughout the world.
The International Gay and Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA) shall foster and augment the self respect of gay women and men throughout the world, and engender respect and understanding from the non-gay world, through the medium of football (soccer). Additionally we work to establish an international network of football clubs and to promote physical and tactical understanding of the game of football.
The IGLFA is no longer an Association who exclusively organizes an International tournament each year, it is also involved in many other activities. This includes supporting local and international clubs and teams as well as heading the coordination of football at the “Federation of Gay Games”.
The IGLFA is also actively involved with numerous sporting organizations and coalition groups who’s goals are to rid homophobia in sport and provide respect towards all participants at all levels.
Through our “Outreach Program”, we have been able to help teams from Africa, Latin America as well as Eastern Europe to participate at our tournaments.
