From Pete Nowakowski (Australia)

The Coin flip reimagined in Bulgaria

From Aleksandra Kalinowska (Poland)
Fans at this match in Bulgaria were entertained with an Easter treat before kick-off as the teams ditched the traditional coin toss for an egg-cracking procedure. And thanks to @Ola_Kalinowska, we're all the better for witnessing it.

Where it all started

From Kubra Keskindokur (Turkey)
We all remember the very first football pitch we ever played on. And the same goes for all of the stars the world will watch take the field at the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™. South Africa forward Thembi Kgatlana's first pitch story caught @kubrailefutbol's eye.

SB Frankfort's Pioneers from Plymouth

From Vanessa Tomaszewski (France)
A U-12 all-girls team called SB Frankfort, who train in Plymouth, England, have made world football headlines after they won their league title. What's so special about that, you ask? They did it playing in a local boys league as the only all-girls team. And in case you missed the story, @championsdudigi is here to make sure you get inspired.
