The Chairman of Paul E Football Club, Somtochukwu Chidiebebe has revealed that the concept of the Paul E Women Football Tournament which will begin soon in Abuja, is to give hope to the girl child, and also give them a platform to exhibit their skills in the round leather game.
According to American based football administrator, “when I decided to start the Paul E Women FC, the main purpose was to help the girl child through football and also enable them create an impact in the women’s football, because I feel it has been neglected for long.
Continuing, Somtochukwu whose male team plays in the Nationwide Division 2 League said the performance of Nigeria Women Football teams in their various tournaments, has shown a bunch of talented players who have achieved a lot for the country, but are not adequately taken care off “I happened to have an agent with direct contact with European clubs because his company is more focused on women’s football and I’m also working with some coach here in America who can facilitate full athletic scholarships for the girls, because they believe we have the raw talents here in Nigeria, but the problem is that there are very little tournaments that these girls can be discovered and given the opportunity to explore their world in the game “.
” minus the football aspect, we also have the Care Group project to help in creating awareness on the girl-child education, drug abuse, domestic violence among others, using the power of football ” he concluded.
The Paul E Inter Area Councils Women Football Tournament is expected to hold in Abuja later in November.
