Best of Women's Football in Bhutan

Football was never felt in the heart of women in Bhutan then as they felt it was a male game. It was just enjoyed by a few girls in school as a competition. The level not the issue but just to increase the number itself was so difficult. 

The attention was gained when the TV was allowed in Bhutan and the girls saw females playing around the globe. The girls in schools got motivated and started to mix and play with boys. The trend changed and the female teams started to participate in the SAFF and SAG games. The recent promotion through social media, newspapers and the TV channels increased the viewers where the media department has been involved so proactively for the change over the fan base.  Today the female teams have almost reached the males level, as they equally participate in almost all the levels and the results are equally good. Bhutan has a small pool of choices but the dedication and determination has been very high.
