Women’s National Team training camp kicks off Oct 26 in Lahore


Lahore: After a gap of over six years, the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) is holding the training camp for women footballers here from October 26 to November 1.

As many as thirty top players from the country have been called up for the camp which will be held under the supervision of National Technical Director and Head Coach Daniel Limones, while seasoned coaches Akhtar Mohiyuddin and Kiran Ghouri will assist him. Raheela Zarmeen will be the Women’s National Team Manager.

According to the PFF, the main focus of the camp is to revamp the Women’s National Team and to set up a structure that could allow a regular and dynamic calendar for the coming time as well as creating the core of the team for the future.

PFF has designed its own protocol to provide a safe environment for players and staff members. Players and staff will be tested before joining and their interaction during the seven-day-camp will be restricted to only the above-mentioned participants.

Head Coach Daniel said: “I’m absolutely thrilled about the possibility of revamping the Women’s National Team after a long period. It is time to put women’s football in Pakistan back into the international scene. Everyone at PFF is excited about this event and have made all the preparation arrangements easier to happen, beginning with the Chairman,”

“Obviously that we will have a COVID-19 free set up. For me, there is no other way to do it because unfortunately, I have the reference with what is happening in my hometown, so the protocols were on the table since the first minute of planning this Training Camp.”
