The event was held at the Takitumu School grounds and brought together parents and children to reflect on how important the sport has grown around the world, especially for women footballers.
Chairperson Women’s Football Committee Moeroa Tamangaro acknowledged the organisers and parents who turned up in big numbers to support the event.
Tamangaro said the event was not only celebrated in Rarotonga, but it has been celebrated around the world marking women’s participation in football and how important it was to encourage more women to play football.
Ministry of Internal Affairs secretary Bredina Drollet said it was an exciting and positive week for women as she attended several events where women were involved.
“We had women in parliament meeting and the National Women’s Business Forum where women participated,” Drollet said.
She said the football event was an exciting sporting activity and it was fantastic for her to be part of the celebration.
Drollet officially opened the event and acknowledged CIFA, parents and the participants for being part of the celebration.
