The infrastructure of clubs is still a big opportunity for growth Uruguayan women’s football. Through a subsidy programme, completely funded by FIFA Forward, the opportunity was given to three clubs (two from first division and one from second Division: Montevideo Wanderers, River Plate and Plaza Colonia) to improve their stadia infrastructure as well as seizing the right timing to use them as training facilities for the national teams that participated in the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup last year.
Not only have these investments started a new infrastructure era for the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF), but they have also given the opportunity for Uruguayan women to have better options for high-quality training sites.
Subsidies for refurbishment of installations in stadia for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup were also provided in line with the member association’s strong will to increase the impact and growth for women’s football. There was also refurbishment and renovation done in the changing rooms of five first division stadiums that were used as training grounds for teams that participated in the 2018 U-17 Women’s World Cup.
With all of these improvements, there is no doubt that women’s football will keep growing and developing in the South American nation. With such projects, the development of Uruguayan’s women’s football will get stronger, which will see them competing at the highest levels and competitions.
