Women’s football has grown exponentially over the past few years around the world. The commitment and passion of everyone involved in the sport show us that it has only just begun. Women’s football offers unique opportunities for women to find their potential, empower them and continue to inspire more women to make a positive impact on the world.
The importance of women in football has been increasing, from managerial positions in football clubs, great relevance of the sport in the media, better conditions for women’s teams and more sponsors for teams and their players.
We have had great examples of women in football who have broken stereotypes, have fought against the prejudices imposed by society and have shown that there are no limits. We are talking about Ada Hegerberg, Marta Vieira, Megan Rapinoe, Jenni Hermoso, or examples off the field such as Fatma Samoura, the first woman general secretary of FIFA, or Lydia Nsekera, the first woman to be elected as a member of the FIFA Executive Committee in its 109-year history. These women have served as an inspiration to many more who strive to follow in their footsteps and continue to make a positive change in the world.
