On Friday, the first all-transgender soccer team made history by playing their first game. TRUK United FC (trans) took to the field against the men’s team, Dulwich Hamlet FC.
Dulwich won 8-1.
An incredible achievement for TRUK United FC. Not only did they make history by being the first all-transgender soccer team to play a match, but they also managed to achieve an impressive 1 goal against their opponent. Dulwich Hamlet FC, the men’s team, must be shaking in their boots after such a fierce competition. And by fierce, I mean Dulwich Hamlet FC managed to secure a whopping 8 goals against TRUK United FC (trans).
A group of exclusively trans-identified women (trans men) played against a men's soccer team in the UK.
Got beaten 8 – 1

A real privilege to watch this match tonight, including the greatest free kick goal I’ve ever seen live. Such a great atmosphere. #TransDayOfVisibility https://t.co/3NxQWbmlv3
