Kaya’s Title Victory Signals Progress for Women’s Domestic Football

Hali Long played for Kaya-Iloilo in the 1-0 win over Manila Digger in the final which awarded Kaya the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) Women’s League crown. This marked a significant step in the country’s women’s football scene. She was accompanied by goalscorer Sheen Nicole Ramores, MVP Shelah Cadag, goalkeeper Inna Palacios, and Camille Rodriguez who all have national team experience. Together they helped Kaya become the first club to win the women’s league title after the last three editions were won by collegiate team La Salle. Ramores scored the winning goal in the 86th minute and coach Let Dimzon was impressed by her impactful performance. Cadag, who produced 12 goals during the season, was awarded as the best player of the tournament. Simpson of Manila Digger was named as the best keeper of the tournament, and Teves and Bandoja shared the top goalscorer award with 19 goals each. The league is expected to continue growing after the historic feat achieved by the Filipinas at the Fifa Women’s World Cup a few months ago. The women’s football scene has seen increased support, improved clubs, and investment from stakeholders which bodes well for its future. Even new clubs are expected to join the league while existing sponsors, including major backer Coca-Cola Philippines, are likely to remain. INQ
