MFA launches campaign to promote women's football

A campaign meant to promote women’s football was launched on Friday during a press conference at the MFA Technical Centre, Ta’ Qali.

MFA Chief Executive Officer Bjorn Vassallo said the association was committed to promoting and developing women’s football and the invitation to Italian women’s national team coach Pietro Ghedin a few weeks ago was one of the initiatives in this regard.

Vassallo said that together with UEFA, the MFA was working hard to attract more women to the game. He said the association has opened wide the doors of the Technical Centre for greater co-operation with whoever wants to work for the good of the game. This includes women’s football and the association wants to educate and provide opportunities to girls to play football in a relaxed and friendly environment.

MFA Technical Director Robert Gatt thanked the MFA, the technical staff and the women’s football department for the work being done in this sector, saying this work is aimed towards promoting and sustaining grassroots football.

MFA Deputy General Secretary (Grassroots, Youth Development and Education) Maria Mifsud gave an overview of the ongoing work by the MFA’s women’s football department in promoting and improving women’s football.
