The AFC has declared India as the host nation for the upcoming AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022. The decision has brought joy to the Indian contingent of Women’s football.
“I was overcome with joy when I learnt that in 2022, India will host both, the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022 as well as the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022. I was very happy because these tournaments will be a fantastic stepping stone for our young girls to progress. When you look at the support for our team that participated in the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017, it is really unbelievable. They were so widely and strongly supported, which made me really happy. I would humbly request everyone to show similar support to the women who will be participating in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022 in January next year, as well as to those who will play in the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022 in October next year.”- Bala Devi.
Maharashtra is the host of the tournament across January and February. “Our Goal For All” is the official slogan of the tournament.
The anticipation for the prestigious competition is massive. After winning three out of their previous 4 games, the Indian team is in a rich vein of form. The pressure is surely building upon this talented team as they shoulder the expectations of numerous Indian fans. Be the 12th woman and give them the extra boost they need.
