In the 1970s, there was a huge breakthrough for the popularity of women’s football as the first women’s football organization was established.

The first ever women’s football World Cup was held in China in 1991 and women’s football’s popularity in Hong Kong has improved since then. In 2015, three Hong Kong female players were invited by Japanese football clubs for a trial.

One important aim of our WOMEN’S FOOTBALL inspires! is to promote gender equality in Hong Kong so that the opportunity of playing this sports is not only limited to one gender.

Sharing & Feedback

I am very happy to be the head coach of WOMEN’S FOOTBALL Inspires! for three years already, giving a hand to young underprivileged girls through the time.  One thing that I find delightful is how women’s football is gaining acceptance amongst Hong Kong parents in recent years. Women’s football is a mixture of masculinity and femininity. Have you seen how lovely girls are when they play football? If not, join us and watch our students play!

Coach – Tiffany

Chiang has become happier, more confident and more independent. She used to need me to sort out her school uniform, but now does it all by herself.
