Lack of funds, coverage and support in women’s football

Nobody believes in women..if people could just take their time as they do in men’s football things will actually change.
Do you think male athletes can do anything to help drive visibility of female sports?
yes it is very much possible they can actually create awareness in women’s football.
What role do you think sponsorship brands should play in creating awareness about women in sports?
By helping the women in sports with sponsorships for example allowances that help to motivate players Providing the teams with kits and doing much more advertisements to create awareness about women in sports
What needs to change in order for women’s sports to be taken as seriously as men’s?
Most of the people have negative thoughts about the women’s sports all that women in sport have to do is just believe and trust in themselves and give their best in everything they do motivate each other and go for it until they make it.
