Here is their press release:

PRESS RELEASE| 25June 2017  Opportunity, Equality, Respect. Nothing More, Nothing LessWomen play record-breaking football match at top of Mt Kilimanjaro to call for ‘Equal Playing Field’ for women in Sport. On Saturday, June 24, women from 20 countries played a full 90-minute match officiated by female FIFA accredited referees in the crater of Mr Kilimanjaro, an altitude of 5729 metres. The thrilling match saw plenty of shots on goal but ended 0-0 with great saves from both goalkeepers.Laura Youngson said ‘We are elated to have made history. The game, in thin air and on the back of a 5-hour climb was one of the hardest challenges of my life. However we had incredible team spirit, and it was a joy to play together.’ Erin Blankenship said ‘This is just the start. We want every girl to have the opportunity to play this great game and we are excited about what the Equal Playing Field initiative achieves next.
