A year ago, this initiative was put in to practice by the Football Federation Samoa to push and enhance women’s participation in Football.

Tuesday 20th September 2016 was the final day of the two days tournament that was hosted by FFS for 3 participated schools in Upolu whilst the Savaii Women’s College tournament kicks off this at the FFS Regional fields in Iva.

New to the Tournament, Leififi College team took on Pesega for the finals, saw a tremendous 7 nil score after final whistle.

It’s a fantastic day for the Lefifi team, I’m so proud of the girls and their performance today. Now they actually get their reward and they deserve it, Ualesi says
