THE Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) has announced the celebration of its first annual Women’s Football Day on Saturday, May 23.
This initiative, which was presented at the CONCACAF “Let’s Develop Women’s Football” seminar held in October 2014, in Philadelphia, will aim to unite all 41 Member Associations to celebrate women’s football throughout the region.
“This day is dedicated to recognizing the passionate, fearless, and devoted members of CONCACAF’s elite women’s teams, and inspire the younger generation to take the game to new heights,” said CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb. “As we embrace a new era in women’s football, we aim to further develop the talents of female players in our Confederation and will continue to empower the women’s game through initiatives such as this one.”
Scheduled to kick-off at 11:00 a.m. EDT, several activities will be organized at CONCACAF’s Member Associations with support provided by the Confederation. Women’s Football Day will strive to achieve the distinction of being the first occasion that all of CONCACAF’s members will simultaneously organize a women’s football activity.
