Women’s football is back in the headlines after FIFA released a statement confirming it will be introducing a gender quota to its 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament.
The tournament, which will be held in Russia and Canada, has been plagued by gender inequality.
FIFA’s decision to bring the competition to a new age has been met with mixed reactions from women’s rights advocates and fans alike.
However, many believe the 2022 tournament will be the best tournament women’s football has ever had.
“I can honestly say that I am excited to watch the World Cup in Russia because it will have such a different atmosphere,” said Francesca Vincenzo, a 26-year-old professional footballer.
“There will be no sexism and it will really be a female-only tournament.”
The players will all be female and they will all wear the same colour, so it will bring a different vibe to the games and the stadiums, and it would also be the first World Cup without racism.
“It would be a huge honour to watch this tournament.
The atmosphere will be incredible and I hope it will inspire young women to get involved.”
The 2022 World Cup will be played in Russia, Canada, the US, and England.
The Women’s World Cup is set to be played between the Netherlands and Belgium on March 18, 2020.
