Goal is more girls

In the interest of promoting women’s football in the Cayman Islands, the Department of Sports is hosting a showcase match on Saturday.

Co-organised with the Cayman Islands Football Association, the showcase event is intended to encourage more girls to get involved as footballers.

Coach Thiago Cunha, Technical Director of Women’s Football is concerned at the low numbers of girls playing at Under-14 and U-11 level.

The Girls Football Showcase is an Honouring Women’s Month event. It’s at the TE McField Annex from starting 2.30-6pm.

The format will be a girl’s 9-a-side tournament featuring eight teams from across the Islands. Four teams are in the 11 and under age group and four in the 14 and under age group.

The tournament is followed by CIFA’s first round Women’s FA Cup match between Future and Elite starting at 7pm.
