March 8, 2023
Today, International Women's Day, we are proud to announce the news published by FIFA echoing the great work that the Thailand Football Association is doing in recent years to continue promoting women's football in the country.
For several years, the Federation of Thailand has relied on the "FIFA Coach Education Scholarship" through which coaches will receive financial support to cover the costs of their coaching courses. with the aim of increasing the number of female coaches in the country.
"We currently offer scholarship programmes from G to A level as well as a Goalkeeping C course with the intention to develop Thai coaches and the women’s league. With the support of FIFA, we have successfully implemented women’s B and A level programmes,"
"With FIFA’s help, the training of female coaches and administrative staff is being encouraged in order to develop women’s football in Thailand as well as our grassroots, youth and senior leagues. So far these female coaches have shown a high level of competency in terms of coach education, national teams and talent identification. Our main objective is to train these female coaches in the philosophy of our FA and retain talent to ensure we can offer better women’s football programmes in the future." explained Carles Romagosa, co-author of the Ekkono Method and Technical Director at FAT.
Thanks to FAT’s commitment to offering courses specially designed for women, 18 female coaches completed their AFC B Diploma in November 2022. This month, a new group of female coaches will begin working towards their AFC A Diploma.
Thailand FA is also working closely with FIFA’s Women’s Football Division to obtain club licenses at a national level for its women’s league. The FAT aims to take this league to the next level by developing the professionalism of the women’s game both on and off the pitch. Committing to training female coaches is an essential part of this process.
“Thank you for providing our female coaches with the opportunity to advance their careers. I believe that having knowledgeable coach educators who have undergone the necessary training will benefit our players. This will be a key factor in continuously developing our national teams and leagues." said Rumpha Varaveerakul, Head of the Women’s Department at FAT.
