A Game for All is a new Nike short that recognizes the contributions that women have made to soccer in Nigeria. Directed by Nigerian-American filmmaker Amarachi Nwosu and shot in Lagos, Nigeria, the short clip follows several young female players as they practice, build community, and prove that the sport is as much theirs as it is anyone else's.
"They could talk to you about their struggles, but they'd rather show you how they overcame," says Nwosu, who appears in the film as a radio host and narrator.
Many female soccer players in Nigeria and throughout the continent continue to fight for equal pay and recognition, and A Game for All is a reminder that the acknowledgment of the contributions of women to the beloved sport is long overdue.
The film is a part of a Nike's initiative, highlighting emerging female directors by having them capture what soccer looks like in their respective communities.
