This is the first women’s tournament where young girls and women from diverse background come together to compete against each other through sports. Most of the women players were playing for the first time and believed that this is a major step in their life as they challenged themselves to be the part of a futsal tournament which is usually known as men’s sport. They also mentioned that it helped to boost their self esteem and confidence. The event was supported by Flytech International and Red bull.
8 teams from different companies, institution, colleges and school participated in the tournament. “We are very happy that we could bring girls and women of diverse group at one group in the form of this sport. For many it was the first time they played football and there were also few girls who were very passionate about the futsal. After the feedback we received after the tournament, we are thrilled and are planning to do more such events in the future.”
