Women’s football is a sport that is growing in popularity; it is not up and coming, it is already here.
The growth of women’s football in India however, has been abysmally slow, and to a certain extent, has been altogether stunted.
Women’s football In India is not given as much importance as it should be. This sport suffers from an utterlack of infrastructure, and opportunities; and the public is almost barred from gainingany awareness regarding it. Most people would not even know of the existence of a professional level circuit or league.
We have many girls who are eager and keen to learn but who have absolutely nowhere to turn. There are insufficient facilities from which they could learn the sport or develop even the fundamental skills for football. The only way to play for most people is if their schools or colleges have a team; after their time in such an institution, there is no scope for progress or expansion.The big conglomerates need to seriously look at funding for women football in India. It is yet another sport in India which is beginning to be seriously neglected.
No doubt, the sport has grown over the last 2 – 3 years professionally, with the introduction of the Women’s I league; an ISL style league for women as it was called; providing a platform for women. But as mentioned, this is for professionals. If there exist no facilities where a girl can even begin to play the sport, even the professional leagues will begin to deteriorate to poorer and poorer standards.
