Football’s regional body, Oceania Football Confederation, has presented a challenge to its member associations to support International Women’s Day through football.
In support of International Women’s Day, the Cook Islands Football Association (CIFA) will be hosting a Women’s Football Day event this Friday at the Takitumu School grounds in Matavera.
Puaikura ended their Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League campaign with head held high despite losing all their three matches.
Twenty-year-old Pekay Edwards headed into Puaikura’s final match against Hienghène Sport full of pride for his club jersey and supporters back home last night (CI time).
A defiant Puaikura gave their all but it wasn’t enough to secure them a historic victory at the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League in New Caledonia on Tuesday night.
Puaikura will be hoping to pick some inspiration from their gutsy performance in the OFC Champions League opener in a bid to get their first win in the competition.
