Saudi girls dream big with launch of football league


Players chosen for the first Saudi women’s national football team, managed by veteran German Monika Staab, show off their skills at Prince Faisal bin Fahad bin Abdulaziz stadium in Riyadh.

The launch of Saudi Arabia’s first women’s football league on November 22 will open the door for hundreds of girls hoping to begin a professional career – and perhaps, one day, to take part in the Women’s World Cup.

The country, which lifted a ban on women’s football only a few years ago, wants to strengthen its women’s national team in the hopes of taking part in international tournaments.
