The football journeys of Manchester City’s Nikita Parris and West Ham United’s Rosie Kmita have been brought to life in unique motion projections as the two clubs prepare to face off in The SSE Women’s FA Cup Final this Saturday.

Narrated by the players, the video follows their journeys to reach the pinnacle of the domestic game – from playing football in their hometowns to playing at Wembley Stadium – depicted through projections at locations that have played a role in their success.

From a front garden in Toxteth, Liverpool, where Parris first fell in love with football at the age of seven, to a park in Enfield, London, where Kmita would play with her sister, the video culminates at the location of this Saturday’s SSE Women’s FA Cup Final, Wembley Stadium connected by EE.

On playing at Wembley, Manchester City’s Nikita Parris said: “Growing up, I used to play football in my mum’s garden before I joined my neighbour’s under-9s team. Its surreal to think of those memories and to now be playing at Wembley. When I walk out onto the pitch I will take in the whole atmosphere – it’s one of the biggest moments of my career and I’ll cherish the memory for the rest of my life.”
