Copa 71, Synopsis

It is August 1971. Football teams from England, Argentina, Mexico, France, Denmark and Italy are gathering at Mexico City’s sun-drenched Azteca Stadium. The scale of the tournament is monumental: lavish sponsorship, extensive TV coverage, merchandise on every street corner and crowds of over 100,000 hollering fans turn this historic stadium into ‘a cauldron of noise and heat’ match after match. A fawning media treat the players like rock stars. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the greatest moments in international footballing history. But this is a tournament unlike anything that’s happened before. The players on the pitch are all women. And it’s likely you’ve never even heard of it. This is Copa 71, the unofficial Women’s World Cup. Dismissed by both FIFA and domestic football associations around the world, this event has been entirely written out of history. Until now.

Copa 71 was exec produced by Serena and Venus Williams, and Alex Morgan.

Rachel Ramsay, Writer & Director

Rachel started out in news journalism in London and Paris and, able to work in Spanish, French and Portuguese, went on to establish herself working across a wide range of unscripted series, each one with an international perspective.

Victoria Gregory, Writer & Producer

Victoria is a highly established film producer with a passion for telling true stories that will inspire and captivate an audience. With extensive experience in award-winning feature documentaries, her work includes the Academy Award winning Man On Wire, BAFTA winning Senna and the award-winning Show Me The Picture: The Story Of Jim Marshall. Victoria previously worked at the BBC on the flagship series Modern Times and the BAFTA winning The Secret Policeman.

Victoria is a co-founder of New Black Films and currently produces across all projects including acclaimed films such as The Battle Of The Sexes, the Academy Award shortlisted Maiden and, most recently, the IDA nominated, Billie. Copa 71 has been both a journey of discovery and inspiration to her.
