"It turns out that the real football field is so soft." 12-year-old Li Fenglan sighed with wide eyes. She is a young female football player of Yunnan Xuanwei Jingwaimingde Primary School. She has been playing football since the first grade. For 6 years, she and her friends have been training on the sand.
In addition to her teammates who came to the finals with Li Fenglan, there were also the women's football players from Kunming Guansuo Central School and Kunming Yizhong Xishan School. Because of this year's special reasons, the Women's Super League has been closed in Haigeng. There are no spectators, no on-site cheering and shouting, which also makes the Women's Super League that lacks spectators extremely deserted. Therefore, in the final finals, Alipay Charity Foundation and the Chinese Football Association invited three primary and secondary school girls who love football to the scene. Among them, Jingwai Mingde Primary School is also a rural primary school in poverty-stricken areas funded by Alipay’s “Wind Chasing Program”.

"The children heard that they are coming to Kunming, they can watch the game live, and they can also see women's football stars such as Wang Shuang and Wu Haiyan. Not to mention they are too excited. Many children say they can't sleep for several nights." Jingwai Mingde Primary School Said the football teacher Gu Peiying. The children mentioned that they wanted to bring some gifts to the big sisters of women's football. The Alipay Charity Foundation collected the children's wishes, and then found the well-known cartoonist Aman, and designed these wishes into a huge comic TIFO. The day before the game, the "chase girls" arrived in Kunming ahead of schedule, spent the afternoon painting TIFO, pressing their own handprints, and then in the stands of the finals, let the women's football big sisters see their voices .

Before the game started, the girls also came to the stadium early, put their favorite stickers on their faces, blew up the inflatable sticks, and clapped their hands. The players of the two teams have just entered the stadium, and the children can't wait to start cheering on the two teams. "That number 7 is Wang Shuang, and that is Wang Shanshan..." When Wang Shuang came to the side near the stand to take a corner kick, many girls stood up excitedly and cheered their idols.

A standard artificial turf football field is under preparation.
