I love quotes! And the best quotes are ones about soccer!
For this post, I’ve put together the best quotes for soccer that I could find. And these quotes aren’t just for anyone but they are specifically for all the girls out there who love the beautiful game that is soccer.
Women’s soccer is a rapidly growing sport, not only across America but across the world. It’s estimated that worldwide around 30 million women now play soccer. And the next women’s World Cup is expected to attract more than 1 billion viewers for the first time.
This is also reflected at a grassroots level where more girls than ever are taking part in soccer games and competitions.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in women’s soccer.

Reasons girls should get involved in soccer
And there are so many good reasons for girls to get involved in soccer.
- It’s a great way to stay or get fit. As you’re probably aware, there’s a lot of running around, and physical activity in soccer and both those things will only help to improve your health and fitness.
- You learn about teamwork and why it’s so important. There is so much more that can be achieved not just in soccer but in so many areas of life by working together with other people. Soccer clearly shows this principle in action.
- You can make some really good friendships. When you work with someone else towards a similar goal, you are naturally drawn into a closer relationship. In soccer, you’re surrounded by people who are supporting you and cheering you on. As you do the same for the others around you, the depth of friendship will only increase.
- And you can prove to yourself and the world that you are capable of achieving anything you put your hand (or foot!) to. The more you play the game, the more you practice, and the more you improve. You’ll start to see you can do things that only a few months ago you weren’t able to. Soccer will really build your self-confidence.
