That’s only a stereo type that we must break as a society. Such is the attempt of our organisation that has gathered women under various categories to play football to celebrate the sportswomanship which has not been promoted sufficiently in the country so far. This is the session 1 of this tournament. I wish all the ladies a safe and happy event and urge the public to come in large numbers to witness the magic.
