It’s My Game – Empowering Women
Today, we know a lot about women’s football, a few years ago, people didn’t pay much attention to it. Pursuing something which is not conventional requires a lot of self-belief, perseverance, and the guts to never quit.
Women playing football was a rare concept until recently. Women now, on the other hand, are rising to take on all kinds of responsibilities in every profession, and that people have discovered the actual potential of this game, women football is gaining popularity as well. Bhutan Football Federation is dedicating the entire first week of March to all of our wonderful women to commemorate these achievements.
It is not just about being on the pitch and physically playing the game when we talk about being active in football. When it comes to representing Bhutan outside of the country, a team requires much more than just players.
The SAFF U19 Women’s Championship 2021 team featured a complete complement of women-power. The team’s five officials were all female: the Team Manager, Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Physiotherapist, and Media Officer. This was the first time that all of the delegates were women, which is a clear indicator of women’s empowerment.
