The Game Changers


Sport has the power to transform people’s lives, both on and off the field and women's sport has the extra ability to knock down barriers and challenge the status quo.

The Game Changers podcast will give you the chance to sit down with some of the biggest names in women’s sport as they talk frankly about their historic careers, what drives them and how they’ve dealt with some of the toughest challenges they’ve faced.

You may be surprised at what you hear – you’ll certainly be inspired.

The Game Changers podcast: Fearless Women in Sport

May 5, 2020

My guest this week is Maggie Murphy, General Manager of Lewes FC Women. It’s an extraordinary football club with massive ambitions - the first club in the world to pay its male and female players equally.

Maggie has had a fascinating career path, having worked for Amnesty International on human rights issues, Transparency International, the world’s largest anti-corruption organisation and the Sport Integrity Global Alliance, where she was director of public policy and sport integrity. Maggie’s also the Director of Communications at Equal Playing Field, a charity dedicated to advancing women’s equality in sport from grassroots to elite levels.

As mentioned in the podcast, Lewes FC is completely fan owned. You can find out more here: https://www.lewesfc.com/owners
