Barbados joins region in CONCACAF Women's Football Day

Category: | 0 Replies


The Barbados Football Association will be joining the rest of the Caribbean and North and Central America this coming Saturday as they celebrate CONCACAF Women's Football Day. The initiative, which is in its third year, will be aiming to have all 41 federations under the CONCACAF umbrella working towards development of women in the sport under the slogan; 'Every Girl Plays'.

In Barbados, the event will be geared towards inspiring and encouraging girls and women to play the 'Beautiful Game' when the the BFA takes over the Bridgefield field from 9:00 AM on Saturday morning. Running up until midday, players and potential players will get a chance to rub shoulders with and train under members of the senior and Under-17 Women's teams and several of the island's female coaches as they run drills and teach fundamentals of the game.

With CONCACAF looking to build on the success of the 2016 installment which saw them highlighting efforts to create more opportunities for girls and women to get into the game, this year will see the member associations working towards strengthening the programmes on offer that would translate to an increase in participation across the board.

Speaking ahead of the event, CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice President Victor Montagliani said, “Our aim is at consolidating a solid platform for the sustainable growth of women's football within CONCACAF. The third annual edition of the CONCACAF Women's Football Day will be focused on providing further access for younger generations to play the game.”
