Archana of Madurai, who is nineteen years old, has competed in four national games. Practice sessions were not held throughout the pandemic. The coaches are assisting us in regaining our form. They are confident in their ability to take home the winner's trophy. Another player from Cuddalore, R Sandhya remarked that Manipur and Odisha would be tough teams to beat, but they are confident.
Cuddalore native Sumithra Kamaraj (27) is a prominent member of the national team. She believes the state and federal governments should provide more work options for football players, as a PhD student. Women now compete in a variety of sports at both the national and international levels. Playing is a breeze as long as they are in good shape. Most athletes retire from athletics after getting married, citing family obligations.
Having job options would be extremely beneficial to women. In contrast to other sports, there is no quota for female football players in hobs.
Meanwhile, reservation for women footballers is a government policy decision, according to a top official of SDAT in Chennai. Regardless, they will make recommendations to the state government.
