Two ASEAN women footballers: Quinley Quezada and Sarina Bolden, have been chosen for the professional women’s football league in Japan, named WE (Women Empowerment) League, said ASEAN football officials.
The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) announced their national team star players Quinley Quezada and Sarina Bolden would join the Japanese women’s league to be launched this year September.
Bolden will play for Chifure AS Elfen Saitama, while Quezada will join JEF United Ichihara Chiba Ladies, said ASEAN football authorities.
“When I found out, I felt overjoyed,” said Quezada. “I can’t thank the people who’ve helped and supported me throughout this process enough. I’m immensely grateful, excited for this opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started.”
“I am so thankful and blessed to be still able to play the game, especially after a challenging past year that was filled with much uncertainty,” said Bolden.
“I thank the PFF for helping and supporting me throughout this process and the WE League for cultivating diversity, empowering women, and making it bigger than just soccer. I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to be a part of the WE League’s historic first season this year,” Bolden added.—GNLM
