‘An uplifting and eye-opening love letter … a terrifically satisfying documentary.’


'With a relentless pace and plenty of kick, Copa 71 makes it easy to get swept up in the excitement.’


With the country still basking in the excitement of the Matildas’ world cup performance, it’s time for another emotional soccer ride.

The Women’s World Cup was first sanctioned by FIFA in 1991. For most lovers of the sport, that year marks the first chapter of a new era. But there is an important precursor that's gone largely forgotten. Told by the pioneering women who participated in it and built from archive unseen for 50 years, Copa 71 is the extraordinary story of the 1971 Women’s Soccer World Cup, a tournament witnessed by record crowds that has been written out of sporting history — until now.

Filmmakers Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine use archival footage and new interviews to bring this crowd-pleasing investigative documentary to life with a narrative flair that matches the dazzling action on the field.
