The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) launched this Friday the platform Vem Jogar, through which it intends to attract female players, sharing information about the offer made available by clubs across the country.

“The Vem Jogar project is part of the football 2030 strategic plan, under which we want to reach 75,000 practitioners, in the modalities of football, futsal and beach football, and that all clubs have a female side”, explained Mónica. Jorge, director of the FPF, to the Lusa agency.

According to the federal official, currently the number of practitioners is around 11,000, but “the increase in demand from families has been fantastic”.

Mónica Jorge admitted that the good results of the futsal and football teams, as well as the performance in the Champions League “have given greater visibility” to the female side.

“The search always ends up being more intense and media coverage every time we have good results and references”, said the former national selector, adding that “the FPF certification process helps to make the values ​​of parity and equality increasingly a reality”.

The platform, which results from the work of the FPF, district associations and clubs, provides information on clubs that have female activity, the tiers in which registration possible, and data on the location and time of training.

The sports offer, which is available on vemjogar.fpf.pt, covers the 1,854 clubs registered with the organization, although there are 1,248 clubs that have female athletes, in an attempt to “seek to motivate the opening of a women’s football or futsal section” .

The Vem Jogar project is an evolution of the Responde em Campo program, which had the same objective but without the technological advantages that the current one offers.
