The Jordan Women's National Football Team has come a long way to get to the point where they are now. The heart of the team is formed by the very women, now only 30 years old, who were the first to play professional football in Jordan in 2005. At that time, football was generally not considered a sport suitable for girls in Jordans conservative society. Through perseverance and will power and with the support of their parents and HRH Prince Ali Bin Hussein, the women pursued what they love, challenged popular gender perceptions in Jordan and transformed their society. 13 years later, in 2018, girls playing football is considered as normal.
