National team players like Dheeraj Singh, Suresh Wangjam, Akash Mishra, Lalengmawia are proof that Indian Arrows has truly been Indian football’s talent factory.
With the success of the Indian Arrows Men’s team on its cap, AIFF is all set to launch an Arrows Women’s team. The Indian Arrows Women’s team will play in the Indian Women’s League. The Indian Arrows Women’s team is looking to groom girls from a very young age and transform them into fine football players. The girls who had missed out on the U-17 Women’s World cup, who would now be 19, are to be considered for the team.
This program has been initiated by the AIFF president in support of the sports minister and the entire sports ministry. AIFF also realizes that these talented young girls should not be ignored and should be groomed and trained to become better footballers. The target set for the current crop of girls is to train and groom for the 2027 Women’s World Cup.
