Senior players laud AIFF for broad-basing women's football

Bengaluru, Jan 22 (TIWN) The Indian women's national team players have lauded the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) approach to "broad-base women's football across the country" as the final round of Indian Women's League is all set to get underway at the Bangalore Football Stadium here from January 24.

"We have played in New Delhi, Shillong, Ludhiana earlier and are now shifting to Bengaluru. This rightly shows the AIFF''s urge to broad-base women''s football across the country. We thank them for the same and hope to see the Bengaluru crowd coming to the stadium and cheering for their favourite teams from the stands," India striker Bala Devi said.  While the inaugural edition of the tournament kicked off in New Delhi back in the 2016-17 season, the next two editions saw it being hosted in Shillong, Meghalaya and Ludhiana, Punjab. The latest instalment will see the final round of the premier women''s league take place in Bengaluru.  "We are all aware of Bengaluru''s love for the beautiful game and every football player loves to play amidst huge cheers from the stands. This city has been a witness to some historic footballing moments and now, it''s our turn to continue the show," Ashalata Devi, Indian women''s team captain said.
