Making a sport more competitive, while also encouraging more participants and keeping the soul alive is a difficult challenge. Yet this is being met head on by GGE’s Ladies Football Officer.
Athenia Alvarez Ferros fell in love with Gaelic Games and has enjoyed playing club football in 3 countries. Now based in Paris, she leads the charge for change.
Talking with This Sunday’s Game she outlines the issues that GGE are resolving to make the game more interesting. How understanding the needs and mentality of female athletes is key to recruiting and retention. Why matches are vital and playing for other teams will only benefit everyone!
With almost 800 players across over 50 clubs, Ladies football is on the rise and Athenia will tell us how she plans to keep it so!
