Friendly Match Week for women’s senior national teams unveiled

The Friendly Match Week for women’s senior national teams was presented today at Marbella Football Center. The senior women’s national teams of Switzerland, Austria, Romania, Northern Ireland and Faroe Islands will participate in the event organised by MFC.

The representatives of the national teams were present at the presentation ceremony together with Manuel Cardeña, Councillor for Sports of Marbella and Ignacio Ferrer, Head of Communications of Marbella Football Center.

Manuel Cardeña highlighted the positive impact of the arrival of these teams. This sport tourism allows many hotels to remain active during the low season of Sun and Beach.

Ignacio Ferrer added that the growth of women’s football is reflected in the arrival of more and more professional women’s teams and clubs. Marbella will host the world women’s football during the month of February.

The federations will be on the Costa del Sol until the 24th of the same month. An event where the national teams will train and play several matches.
