Girls Football Club 2023

The "Girls Football Club" project by Good Neighbors Kyrgyz Republic continues its mission of supporting girls in football.

Last Friday, October 6, 2023, the final stage of mini-football within the "Girls Football Club" project, implemented by the Branch, will take place at the "Champion" sports complex in the city of Bishkek. The "Girls Football Club" project was first launched in 2019 with the aim of organizing youth girls' mini-football tournaments among representatives of three regions of Kyrgyzstan. This year, the project has been renewed and continues its mission, aiming to expand opportunities and rights for girls in the field of sports.

The final stage of the competition includes the participation of teams consisting of girls from the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, from four regions: Chui, Issyk-Kul, Zhalal-Abad, and Osh. The winning teams, each with 10 girls, will represent their regions in Bishkek and compete for the title of the winner.

"We believe that this project will give girls not only the opportunity to participate in competitive events but also to further develop girls football in our society. Sport contributes to personal growth, strengthens health, and instills important values such as teamwork, respect, and perseverance," noted the Country Director of the Good Neighbors Kyrgyz Republic Mr. Chun Hong Soo.

After the tournament concludes on this important day, a solemn award ceremony will take place, and guests from the Association of Women's Football of Kyrgyzstan are invited to attend. We thank all the participants who supported this project and contributed to its successful implementation. Our goal is to inspire and support girls in their aspirations for achievements and the strengthening of their rights.
