It all started in 2008 when the factory owner, Mr Ezequiel, noticed that young girls from the community were interested in playing football professionally.
In partnership with a local team, Paraíso Sport Club, the company sponsored and organized a professional women’s football team, giving them the chance to play sports.
The condition for participating in the team is that athletes must have a good record at educational institutions. Andressa Santos, one of the team’s strikers, says “football gave me the stability to carry on my studies. I got the motivation to go to university and change my whole life, all through sport”.
Seeing the success the women’s football team – which today participates in a number of championships, including the Copa Brasil – Mr Ezequiel founded their own “Cerâmica Milenium Sports Club” exclusively for factory employees.
