Mumbai Football Association launch Premier and Super League for Women

The Mumbai Football Association (MFA) will further its initiative in women’s football. The committee, led by Shri Aaditya Thackeray, launched a new two-tier women’s league. The Mumbai Women’s Premier League, the top-tier, will host eight teams.

The Mumbai Women’s Super League, the second-tier of MFA’s women’s competition, will have sixteen teams. The aim is to nurture talent, provide opportunities and bolster their performance on the national stage.

“Development of women’s football is of utmost priority for us at MFA. The association will invest in developing programs and curriculums for league development. The work starts from grassroots initiatives.” said Shri Aaditya Thackeray, President of Mumbai Football Association.

The MFA will include various competitions for girls in the coming days. New teams will enter the Yuva Premier League – the largest grassroots football competition in Mumbai. Alongside competitive exposure, the MFA strives to invest in developing curriculums for coaches and referees. It also plans to launch legacy programs ahead of the U-17 Women’s World Cup in November 2022.

“The vision behind forming the women’s committee is commendable. Thanks to our president Shri Aaditya Thackeray for encouraging gender neutrality. His vision will enable young women to dream big. More girls will have opportunities to pursue football professionally. Back in our playing days, opportunities were limited. We can see rapid improvements in women’s football now. Our focus is building a healthy culture for football in the city and provide the best facilities to budding athletes.” said Tanaz Mohammad, member of the Women’s committee at Mumbai Football Association.

The eight teams – Bodyline SC, FC Mumbaikars, Footie First FC, India Rush SC, Kenkre FC, Mumbai Knights FA, PIFA Sports FC, South Mumbai United – will be in action for the Women’s Premier League. The competiton is a league format with promotion and relegation.

The premier division matches will take place in Neville D’Souza Ground, Bandra, from 1st May. The top-tier will be conducted at weekends.

The Women’s Super League will be supported by Bombay Gymkhana’s facilities. The competition will be hosted on weekdays at the Bombay Gymkhana Ground.
