WFA International Welcomes Costa Rica

The WFA would like to officially welcome the Gridiron Women’s Football League, based in Costa Rica to the WFA.  Established in 2019, the GWFL is the first and only women’s tackle league in Costa Rica, but they are not new to international competition.  In December of 2020, the GWFL All Stars hosted WFA’s Team United.

“Team United had an amazing experience playing in Costa Rica in December, “stated Jeff King, WFA International Director, “We are excited to announce this will be an annual event where our players will not only compete, but also run a clinic to teach the game to all interested Costa Rican female players. Our goal is not just to play games, but to build relationships and support their development.”

 As women’s tackle football continues to grow internationally, the WFA is committed to helping develop the sport and increase the level of competition worldwide. By creating a unified network for communication and outreach, the WFA International Program will provide teams and leagues with multiple opportunities to expand and grow women’s football in their country.
