Women's football on the rise in Malawi

Today, Tuesday 8 March 2016, is International Women's Day. As well as the successful conference heralding the impact of women's football at the Home of FIFA yesterday, we are also committed in developing the grassroots of the game around the world.

This short video charts the progression which is currently being made by Malawi. The country in the south-east of Africa may currently stand in 134th position in the FIFA Women's World Ranking, and 19th out of 22 countries in their own confederation, but they are dreaming of appearing at the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Watch the video to discovered how women are being empowered in the country, as well as the strides being made.
