The new department will also work to ensure the participation of Saudi Arabian womenís national representative teams in continental and international competitions.
Welcoming the Boardís decision, Ms Adwa AlArifi remarked that organized women's football in Saudi Arabia has witnessed an encouraging start in the last two years, generating momentum which led to the Boardís approval to establish a special department to foster continued growth. She also noted that the increased presence of women at administrative decision-making levels within the game will help to accelerate the development of women's football and keep pace with the strong levels of support for the womenís game from the Ministry of Sports.
