EP11: GOALS: Onyx FC Co-Founder Georgia Adderley on community, inclusion and sharing the beautiful game
Play • 41 min

We couldn’t let the FIFA World Cup pass us by without a chat about football  

In this episode we chat with Georgia Adderley, one of the four Co-Founders of Onyx FC, the UAE’s first fully female owned football club. 

Despite being from the football-mad UK, Georgia didn’t take up football until moving to Dubai. It was in Dubai that she also found friendship, fun and community, as well as the three other founders of Onyx FC. 

In this episode, we discuss how Onyx FC came about, what football brought to her life, the achievements of the club since it started just one year ago and the growth of women’s football in the UAE and beyond. 

Georgia also shares her predictions for the World Cup!  We hope you enjoy the episode!
