CONCACAF’s first Women’s Football Day is officially underway! After the formal launch by President Jeffrey Webb via an inspirational video message, 37 Member Associations have now kicked-off their women’s football activities around the region.
Throughout the day, thousands of girls and women will have the opportunity to participate in a celebration of women’s football designed to increase awareness of the sport, promote the many benefits of being involved with the women’s game, and unify the entire CONCACAF region in a day of women’s football for the very first time.

- 19 football tournaments – from 3 v. 3 to the final of the senior women’s football league
- 17 grassroots festivals
- 8 football skills challenges
- 2 beach soccer festivals/tournaments
