Georgia: Women's football strategy - Your Time is Now

UEFA Logo

The Georgian Football Federation (GFF), in cooperation with UEFA experts, has devised a four-year strategy for the development of women’s football, titled Your Time Is Now.

“One of the GFF’s main priorities is the development of women’s football. We have been working towards this goal since 2016. We have established a regular domestic league championship and implemented projects that serve to develop girls’ football across the whole country. As a result of our targeted activities and projects, we now have more than 1,600 female players. In 2016, the figure was no more than 120.

This is only the beginning. We still have a long way to go to achieve the full potential of women’s football in Georgia. “Devising the strategy is a historic development for the women’s game here, and is fully in line with the objectives which we have set for ourselves,” said the GFF president, Levan Kobiashvili.

“The main objective of the strategy is to create a strong support structure in our communities and clubs, allowing our coaches, referees and volunteers to develop and grow. To ensure long-term success, we must work with our partners to establish a positive and inspirational perception of women’s football and create safe, sustainable and welcoming environments for all girls and women who wish to play the game.”
