It's August 1971, 20 years before the first official FIFA Women's World Cup.
A monumental, unofficial football tournament takes place in Mexico City, drawing national women’s teams to compete from across the globe. Press, TV and thousands of fans flock to the Azteca Stadium for a tense and glorious tournament – the Copa 71.
Dismissed by both FIFA and domestic football associations around the world, this event has been written out of sporting history.
Told by the pioneering players who participated in Mexico, and filled with tremendous archive footage unseen for fifty years, Copa 71 is a lively retelling of the highs and lows of this groundbreaking championship.
