MORE ABOUT SEWGL
Since its establishment EGCA has worked hard to improve gender equality in the goalball clubs of Europe. EGCA created SEGL – Women’s Champions League (SEWGL) to ensure better equal competitive chances for female athletes and their clubs in Europe.
The 1st edition of SEWGL was the tournament that was held in Odivelas, Portugal in 2019 simultaneously with the final stage of the SEGL – Champions League. Four clubs took part in that historical tournament: Sporting CP (POR), BSI Copenhagen (DEN), Old Power (FIN) and Madrid +Ideas (SPA).
Sporting CP became the first champion of the SEWGL after their undefeated performance; 5 games, 5 wins. BSI Copenhagen took the silver and Old Power the bronze respectively. Turkish super star Sevda Altunoluk was the top scorer of the tournament with remarkable 25 goals before her teammate, Brazilian star player Ana Carolina Duarte (19 goals) and the “Danish bomber” Anja Christensen (12 goals).
Due the corona virus pandemic it took two and half years when the best goalball clubs returned to Odivelas again to fight for the title “European Champion” of club goalball in October 2021. This time there were six participating clubs in the SEWGL tournament.
Sporting CP with their star players; Amanda Dennis (USA), Ana Carolina Duarte (BRA) and Vasiliki Agko (GRE) was too hard to handle for the opponents and the team celebrated its second consecutive champion of the SEWGL. Once again Scandinavian clubs rised also on the bodium when FIFH Malmo from Sweden were the silver medalist and Old Power again the bronze medalist of the competition before RGC Hansa (GER), IK Gipuzkoa (SPA) and CSAVH Lyon (FRA) respectively.
Amanda Dennis became the top scorer of the competition with incredible 39 goals record before Ana Carolina Duarte and Stephanie Boenink (NED) who made 22 goals of each during the tournament.
