The Solomon Islands Football Federation women’s football division has kicked off their preparations for 2023 XVII Pacific Games set to be held in Honiara.
The objectives of the women’s football division were discussed by SIFF Women’s Development Officer Diana Justice yesterday.
“SIFF’s priority now is to work on our lower age categories competitions,’’ she said.
“This is to ensure that we have a competitive team by 2023 Pacific Games,’’ she added.
Honiara Football Association has already started their U-16 competition and the rest of the Provincial Football Associations will kick off their competitions during the upcoming school break.
“So far we’ve already have coordinators in our PFAs,’’ she said.
“They will organise competitions in the provinces,’’ she said.
Justice said their plan is to identify young potential players as soon as possible and help prepare them for the 2023 games.
She also stressed that women’s football is no longer concentrated in Honiara but spread out to the provinces thanks to the support of SIFF administration.
