It’s the beginning of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, a major international event that only happens every four years.

Because of this, particularly in the U.S., women’s soccer and women’s sports in general are getting more popular than ever.
The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup runs Thu, Jul 20, 2023 – Sun, Aug 20, 2023. So, what better time than now to share some of the most inspirational quotes from some of the top women in professional soccer? Let the quotes begin…

“Every champion was once a beginner that didn’t quit.”

We are in an exciting time of watching women rise-up, inspire change, and empower a new generation of young women. The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup is just one major event to get to watch so many strong, hard-working, talented women prove to the world that anything is possible. And that goes for you too. So, whatever you’re going through, whatever you’ve struggled with and whatever you dream- don’t give up, don’t give in and be determined to keep on kicking. Because, thankfully, you don't need a World Cup to make you a champion too.
