The European football team Valencia Club de Fútbol (CF) and the UN agency dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women are teaming up to promote gender equality across the globe.

Valencia's strip will feature the UN Women's logo and there'll be other activities as part of a wider campaign.

The 96-year-old football club is one of the most recognisable brands in European football.
