Female players participate in a friendly women football match at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth located over 400 metres below sea level, the first of its kind in the world.

Promoting the upcoming AFC Women’s Asian Cup scheduled to be held in Amman between April 4 and 20, the Equal Playing Field (EPF) initiative designed the project to raise awareness of the AFC competition and get more women and local communities involved in football.

The organisation and the players conducted a 90km-football trek across the Kingdom to promote gender equality in sports ahead of the game, according EPF’s Facebook page

AT LAST, JORDAN IS PROMOTING WOMEN IN SPORTS AND HELL HAS NOT BROKEN LOOSE. LAST I LOOKED, PEOPLE ARE STILL GOING TO WORSHIS AND GOD IS STILL HEARING THEIR PRAYERS, FERTILITY RATE HAS NOT FALLEN, WOMEN ARE NOT BEATING ON THEIR HUSBANDS, JORDAN AND THE REST OF THE ARAB WORLD ARE STILL GOING ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS WITHOUT PROBLEMS. IN A NUT SHELL, GOD CREATED WOMEN AND MEN THE SAME THOUGH SEX MAY VARRY. THE ARAB WORLD SHOULD THEREFORE COME OUT FROM THE DARK AGES AND MAKE USE OF THE WOMEN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THEIR REGION.
