THE Rise of womens football in the world

IKEJA, Nigeria - March 3, 2023 - PRLog -- With International Women's Day on March 8th approaching quickly, it's an excellent opportunity to take a moment to celebrate the progression of the women's game over the last 20 years. In 1970 Denmark won the first unofficial World Cup for women in Italy. It was only in 1991 that FIFA officially took over the tournament's organization. 2022 was a massive year for women's football, with record-breaking transfers, attendances, and global television viewing figures at an all-time high.

The Lionesses' success at Euro 2022 boosted interest even more in the UK, and they are among the favorites to win Down Under. FIFA's Women's Coach of the Year 21/22, Serena Wiegman, has guided the team to greatness.

People have obviously put them in as favorites after the Euros, and for me, they are the team to beat," said Emma Sanders, BBC Online journalist. They haven't lost a game under Serena Wiegman since she took over at the end of 2021. So an absolutely incredible record, but you just can't write off the USA. They've won the last two World Cups, and they've got a massive rivalry with England. They played each other at Wembley at the end of last year, and that was a close encounter. But England came out on top."

In the middle-east, the women's game is showing signs of progression, too. In 2023, Saudi Arabia hosted the region's very first 11-a-side women's tournament. Football in the region is gaining popularity, especially after the signing of global icon Cristiano Ronaldo to Al-Nassr.

"It's a huge step. Football, in general, is a growing sport, and especially in Saudi Arabia at the moment, the country is developing at such a rapid pace," explained Youssef. These events will inspire them so much in women's football. The Middle East, in general, and all the Arab countries, love football. They dream of this. The sport means so much to them. So for the women's game to develop more and more around this region is very important."

Interest in the game is set to reach an all-time high at this year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, with high hopes the tournament will inspire more young girls around the world to pursue their dreams of being the next Lucy Bronze, Alexia Putellas or Alessia Russo. Exciting times are ahead in 2023 and women's football. Experience the thrill of every game with ILOT BET (
