Most of the women players are playing for the first time and believe that this is a major step in their life as they challenge themselves to be the part of a futsal tournament which is usually known as men’s sport.
There is good evidence that participation in sports can help break-down gender stereotypes, improves self-esteem, defy the misperception that they are weak or incapable and contribute to the development of leadership skills. Every time they clear a hurdle or kick a ball, demonstrating not only physical strength, but also leadership and strategic thinking, they take a step towards gender equality.The winners and runners-up will get trophies and medals, while the best player and highest goal scorer will also receive trophy.
