Member Since 2021

Vivianne Miedema is a force to be reckoned with on the pitch.

It took the lethal striker just 110 games to score 100 goals for the Gunners, and she has found the back of the net more times than any other Dutch footballer—male or female.

In another impressive feat, the Dutch superstar can whip out a mean Scottish accent since pairing up with her girlfriend Lisa Evans, a staple on the Scottish national team.

Since 2019, Miedema has been a War Child ambassador for the Netherlands.

Continuing her fight for others, together, in 2021 the football couple joined the Common Goal movement, choosing to direct their 1% towards helping young people in conflict zones through high-impact community organisations.

"Our platform, who we are, we need to take the opportunity to help people who need it. We can show that and I think we are privileged to be able to do so."

Speaking on the power of the collective, Miedema stated, “It’s not a lot of money but it’s one of those things that if we all stick together and get others on board it can make a massive difference in areas of conflict and areas of violence where people need help,”

Miedema sees the potential football holds in helping people in difficult situations and making the world a better place.  

“Sport can really make a big difference. One of the most important things when you are in a conflict area and you have that anger and that sadness it’s important to be able to let go and for a lot of children that means being on a football pitch or a basketball court or whatever that outlet is.
