Women Can Play Football Too in P.I.A.: Pinay In Action

Who says football is only a man's sport? One time, I got to interview a young girl who is part of the team dominated by boys. Seeing her in action shows that she can play along pretty good with fellow male team mates.

In P.I.A.(Pinay In Action), it also shows that there are already a lot of girls playing football especially in schools who have football fields that also offers the sport as an option for Physical Education classes.

This only means that football is no longer an exclusive sports like basketball and baseball. Here are the results of the all-women 3-on-3 football festival organized by Sen. Pia Cayetano. 24 teams participated during the two-day event at Bonifacio High Street last February 13 to 14.
