Football is the most popular sport in the world, with millions of fans across the globe. However, for many years, women’s football has been a topic of debate in many countries. In Gibraltar, there has been a long-standing tradition of men’s football, but the development of women’s football has been slow and has faced many obstacles. Despite these challenges, at Gibraltar Wave FC we have determined individuals and I`ve seen this in all the other clubs as well as the Gibraltar FA, with the appointmemnt of Scott Wiseman as the New Women’s Football Development Manager Wiseman, working hard to promote and develop women’s football in the country. Today, we will explore the current state of women’s football in Gibraltar and the efforts being made to break down barriers and promote gender equality in the sport. We will highlight what is driving change and share some inspiring stories of women who are making their mark in the sport. Get ready to be inspired by the passion and determination of those working to develop women’s football in Gibraltar!

Introduction to women’s football in Gibraltar

Women’s football in Gibraltar has been making significant strides in recent years, breaking barriers and defying stereotypes. While Gibraltar is known for its vibrant football culture, the development of women’s football has been a relatively recent phenomenon. Historically, the sport has been predominantly male-dominated, with limited opportunities for women to participate at a competitive level.

However, with the increasing global focus on gender equality and the rise of women’s football worldwide, Gibraltar has embraced the movement and taken steps to foster the growth of the women’s game. The Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) has been instrumental in driving this change, implementing initiatives aimed at encouraging young girls and women to get involved in football from grassroots to senior levels.

One of the key catalysts for the development of women’s football in Gibraltar is giving the right place to the Gibraltar Women’s Football League. Still missing as we go to press is a Website like that of the men`s as well as streaming the matches like the men`s..  The league provides a platform for female players all skill levels to showcase their talent and compete in a structured and competitive environment. It has created a pathway for young girls to dream of playing football and who knows maybe to even aspire playing professionally in the near future in Gibraltar or elsewhere and has given women the opportunity to represent Gibraltar on the international stage.

Additionally, the GFA has invested in coaching and development programs specifically tailored for women and girls. These programs focus on providing quality training, mentorship, and support to nurture the skills and talents of aspiring female footballers. By investing in the development of coaches and providing resources for women’s football, the GFA is ensuring that Gibraltar can produce a new generation of skilled and competitive players.

Furthermore, the Gibraltar women’s national team is playing a significant role in raising the profile of women’s football in Gibraltar. The team’s participation in international competitions, such as the UEFA Women’s Euro qualifiers and opening participation in UEFA Women`s Champiosn League will inspire and showcase the talent and potential of Gibraltar’s female players on a broader stage. Their performances have garnered attention and support, inspiring more girls and women to get involved in the sport.

As all can see, the development of women’s football in Gibraltar is an exciting and transformative journey. With the commitment of the Gibraltar Football Association, the marketing of the women’s league, investment in coaching programs, and the success of the national team, the future of women’s football in Gibraltar looks promising. By breaking barriers and providing equal opportunities, Gibraltar is paving the way for female footballers to thrive and contribute to the growth of the sport in our community.

The challenges faced by women’s football in Gibraltar

Developing women’s football in Gibraltar is not without its challenges. Despite the growing popularity of the sport worldwide, women’s football still faces several barriers in this small Mediterranean territory.

One of the main challenges is the lack of infrastructure and resources dedicated to women’s football. Historically, football in Gibraltar has been predominantly male-dominated, with limited investment and attention given to the women’s game. This has resulted in a shortage of training facilities, proper coaching, and competitive opportunities for female players.

Another significant obstacle is the cultural perception of women’s football. Traditional gender norms and stereotypes have often resulted in a lack of support and interest in women’s sports. Many people still hold the misconception that football is a male sport, leading to limited participation and recognition for female players. .

Furthermore, the limited number of teams dedicated to women’s football in Gibraltar has hindered its growth. The lack of a robust competitive structure makes it challenging for talented female players to showcase their skills and progress in the sport. Now with the intelligent reduction of local players to four on the field by the GFA will surely help much in increasing participation and development of women`s football and the Gibraltar Women`s National League. 

Additionally, the financial constraints faced by women’s football in Gibraltar pose a significant challenge. Securing sponsorship and funding for women’s teams and events can be challenging to say the least, which impacts the ability to provide necessary resources and opportunities for players and growth.

Despite these challenges, there has been a growing awareness and commitment to developing women’s football in Gibraltar. Organizations and individuals are working towards breaking down these barriers by advocating for equal opportunities, improving facilities, and promoting the sport through various initiatives.

By addressing these challenges head-on and investing in the development of women’s football, Gibraltar can create a more inclusive and thriving football community that empowers female athletes and encourages their participation in the sport.

The progress made in recent years

In recent years, the progress made in developing women’s football in Gibraltar has been truly remarkable. With a strong emphasis on inclusivity and equal opportunities, the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) has taken significant steps to pave the way for female athletes to thrive in the sport.

One of the most notable achievements is improvements in the Gibraltar Women’s National League. This will mark a pivotal moment in the history of women’s football in Gibraltar, providing a well marketed platform, The Gibraltar Women’s National League  for talented players to showcase their skills and compete to aim for the higher level posible, The UEFA Women`s Champions League. 

In addition to the league, the GFA has actively invested in the development of grassroots programs and youth academies for girls. These initiatives aim to nurture talent from a young age, fostering a strong foundation for the future of women’s football in Gibraltar. Through structured training sessions and competitive matches, young girls are encouraged to pursue their passion for the sport and reach their full potential.

Furthermore, the GFA has been proactive in creating opportunities for female coaches, referees, and administrators. By providing training courses and support, they strive to ensure that women have equal access to leadership roles within the sport. This not only promotes gender equality but also contributes to the overall growth and professionalism of women’s football in Gibraltar.

The progress made in recent years has been met with great enthusiasm and support from the community. Attendance at women’s matches has increased, demonstrating a growing interest and appreciation for the sport. Local businesses and sponsors are now begining to shown their commitment by providing financial support and resources to further elevate women’s football in Gibraltar.

Overall, the progress made in recent years is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the GFA and Gibraltar Wave FC along with all others involved in developing women’s football in Gibraltar. With each passing season, the barriers are being broken down, and the future looks brighter than ever for female footballers in this small but mighty territory.

Initiatives and programs supporting women’s football development

In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of developing women’s football in Gibraltar. To break down barriers and promote gender equality in sports, several initiatives and programs have been put in place to support the growth and development of women’s football.

The best initiative is the establishing a fixed date and time for training of the teams. The biggest “enemy” has been the constant changes in allocated training days and times. Just keeping this fixed for a month, if not longer, will help all clubs dedicate more time on actually training then discussing day and time of trainings. The other is more opportunities for club and country to participate and compete more local and international tournaments. By creating these opportunities, it encourages more women and young girls to get involved in the sport and pursue their passion for football.

At Gibraltar Wave FC we not only teach the fundamentals of the game but also instill values such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. 

Moreover, we have introduced initiatives like our BlockSport created app to help increase the visibility and exposure of women’s football. 

This includes organizing friendlies like the match we played against Oxford City FC and hosting tournaments, like the one planned for  and arranging friendly matches with international teams. By showcasing the talent and skills of female players, it helps to change societal perceptions and challenge stereotypes surrounding women’s involvement in football.

Support from GFA and government is also crucial in driving the development of women’s football. Funding schemes, grants, and sponsorships are provided to support clubs, coaches, and players, ensuring that resources are allocated to promote gender equality in sports and empower women to fully participate in football.

In conclusion, the initiatives and programs supporting women’s football development in Gibraltar are instrumental in breaking barriers and creating a more inclusive and equitable sports environment. By providing opportunities, training, and support, women and girls are encouraged to pursue their passion for football, leading to the growth and success of women’s football in Gibraltar.

Despite being a small territory with a population of around 30,000 people, Gibraltar has made significant strides in developing women’s football. 

Women’s football is still in its infancy in Gibraltar, with only three teams participating in the Gibraltar Women’s Football League as of the 2018–19 season. However it has grown with 5 teams competing in 2021–22. In 2014, it did host a women’s development tournament organised by UEFA, losing 1–0 in its first game to Andorra. The side lost all three games against Andorra, Luxembourg and an Algarve XI. However, as a development tournament, these games are not recognised as full internationals.

Since then, Gibraltar’s involvement in UEFA sanctioned women’s football has been limited to sending under-16 girls’ teams to participate in development tournaments, most recently in Malta in 2019. In June 2021 the team made their debut in a full international, in a 4–1 defeat to Liechtenstein. November 2021 it was announced that an under-19 team would be formed and entered into qualification for the 2023 UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship. Exciting times?

Now to satisfy UEFA`s interest in getting all UEFA member states entering a team, the winners of the Gibraltar Women`s National League 2023/24 may take part in UEFA Women’s Champions League and I feel this will be the point at which the growth of women`s football will begin in a big way. 

Increased participation and visibility

The impact of increased participation and visibility of women’s football in Gibraltar cannot be overstated. As more women take up the sport, not only does it provide them with opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment, but it also helps to challenge societal stereotypes and break down gender barriers.

One of the key benefits of increased participation is the empowerment it brings to women in Gibraltar. Through football, they gain confidence, develop leadership skills, and learn the value of teamwork. It provides a platform for women to showcase their abilities and challenge traditional notions of what women can achieve in sports.

Furthermore, the visibility of women’s football has a profound impact on changing societal perceptions. As more matches are played and covered in media outlets, the public becomes more exposed to the talent and dedication of female footballers. This exposure helps to dismantle stereotypes and biases, creating a more inclusive and accepting society.

Increased participation and visibility in women’s football also have long-term effects. As young girls see female role models on the field, they are inspired to pursue their passion for the sport, knowing that they too can succeed. This creates a positive cycle of growth and development, where more girls are encouraged to take up football, leading to a larger talent pool and higher standards of play.

Moreover, the impact extends beyond the field. Women’s football can have a ripple effect on other aspects of society, such as promoting gender equality and challenging traditional gender roles. By breaking barriers in sports, women are empowered to break barriers in other areas of their lives, contributing to a more equitable and inclusive society as a whole.

In conclusion, the increased participation and visibility of women’s football in Gibraltar have a transformative impact. It empowers women, challenges societal stereotypes, and inspires the next generation. By breaking down barriers, women’s football paves the way for a more inclusive and equal society, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.

Conclusion: The importance of developing women’s football in Gibraltar

In conclusion, the development of women’s football in Gibraltar is of utmost importance and holds immense potential. As we have explored throughout this article, breaking barriers and promoting gender equality in sports can have far-reaching impacts on society as a whole.

Not only does developing women’s football offer opportunities for female athletes to showcase their skills and pursue their passion, but it also provides a platform for empowerment, leadership, and personal growth. By investing in the growth of women’s football, Gibraltar can foster a sense of inclusivity, diversity, and equality within its sporting community.

Furthermore, the development of women’s football can have positive effects on the overall sporting landscape in Gibraltar. It can contribute to the growth of football as a whole, attracting more fans, sponsors, and investments. It can also inspire younger generations of girls to get involved in sports, encouraging a healthier and more active lifestyle.

To ensure the successful development of women’s football in Gibraltar, it is crucial to address various aspects, including infrastructure, coaching programs, funding, and media coverage. By providing the necessary resources and support, Gibraltar can create a solid foundation for women’s football to thrive and flourish.

Developing women’s football in Gibraltar goes beyond the realm of sports. It is a powerful tool for social change, breaking down gender barriers, and promoting equality. Let us continue to champion and support women’s football, paving the way for a more inclusive and diverse future in Gibraltar’s sporting landscape.

In conclusion, I hope this article has shed light on the importance of developing women’s football in Gibraltar and breaking the barriers that exist in the sport. We have discussed the significant progress that has been made in recent years, as well as the challenges that still lie ahead. By investing in infrastructure, providing equal opportunities, and fostering a supportive environment, Gibraltar has the potential to become a powerhouse in women’s football. It is crucial that we continue to advocate for gender equality in sports and empower women to pursue their passion for football. Together, we can create a future where women’s football thrives in Gibraltar and inspires generations to come.

Everyone knows that when players are told that they are going to be released, is a very traumatic experience. In many cases, all of the players are brought from a changing room full of their teammates to learn their fate. 

Young players are made to hold it all in but they’re sitting in the changing room they have used for years where their young lives have been shared with teammates, kit man, coaches, physiotherapists and more and you literally get told no, and it’s within ten minutes, you’ve got all your stuff and you’re out and you never see them or the place where you`ve shared your life again. So it’s just kind of like from everything to nothing in a split second.

In the longer term, in some cases up to a year after their release, many players experienced psychological difficulties

Is anyone surprised that depression and anxiety sets in? I`ve heard players say:

I won’t lie to you, yeah I did get down after I left. Like, properly … like I’m not gonna sit here and try and tell anyone it doesn’t affect me, it affected me more, like … a year after … or like, six, seven months after and some even longer.

Many players received no support or aftercare from their clubs, which added to their difficulty transitioning away from the club. One said:

The club kind of just leave you to it which is hard because you’d been there for so long. Then they just brush you aside like you’re nothing. The players found it hard to go to their parents for help, because they did not want to burden them with their emotional difficulties.

Many players do note the excellent support provided by the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and especially League Football Education. I myself was LFE Placement officer in Spain for 4 years prior to setting up Europa Point FC from scratch and singled handedly just to give second chances. Counselling from the PFA is optional, though, and the players are the ones to contact them for support. League Football Education does an even closer job through their regional officers. Automatically scheduled counselling could make a difference to players released from academies.

Some players speak of the benefit of seeking support through independent counselling services:

Players feel so so down. Counselling sessions do help to make these players a better person and more resilient. 

Players released from academies also need more support from their clubs. Academies could develop pre-release programmes aimed at preparing players for release which could support their transition away from their club. This could include focusing on players’ coping skills, improving their ability to seek social support and developing their confidence and self-esteem.

In January 2022, Crystal Palace Football Club announced that they would offer three years of aftercare for released players between the ages of 18 and 23, with a “player care officer” allocated to released players to support them and help them find a new football club or move into education or a job.

In June 2022, new guidelines passed by the Premier League will require all Premier League and English Football League clubs to give a three-year “commitment of support” to released academy players. Initiatives like those at Crystal Palace are hopefully the start of a sea change in the British academy system. If more clubs follow suit, they can help prevent those childhood dreams from becoming nightmares for released players and their families.

Watch Dropped, a hard-hitting, heartbreaking new film which highlights the devastating impact top-flight football academies have on young men when they drop those who don’t make.

The creative highlights what happens when they are given no mental health support to deal with what is often a life-changing and traumatic decision.

Dropped exposes mental health issues

The beautifully shot but harrowing four-minute film, ‘Dropped’, exposes the harsh reality of the mental health issues currently running rampant in youth football, where children are brutally rejected at what is often the most vulnerable time of their young lives. 

The film tackles the impact of being deemed not good enough and highlights how the young hopefuls can be left feeling so heartbroken by rejection that some want to end their lives.

We at Reygadas Sports Group prefer no player to be released. Unfortunately this is only a pipe dream. However, at #Fusion4ExitPathway, our new project, being a released player becomes a blessing in disguise as we add #TikiTaka to inherent #EnglishGrit to produce Home Grown Players for English clubs and England.

If you are a brand, a club, a coach an agent, a Fan get involved with #Fusion4ExitPathway

When Women`s football was bigger than men`s

Thanks to greater media attention and broadcasting in recent years, you might think women’s football has never been more popular. But you’d be wrong. For those who still like to criticise the women’s game as being somehow less important or commercially viable, here’s the truth: women’s football in the UK, where football was invented, was once even more popular than the men’s, and would have become bigger and bigger if it hadn’t been forcibly curtailed by the English FA. 

Do you want to be part of “curtailing” women`s football again or helping change the world for one of respect and inclusion? It’s a story that defies the stereotypes of sport and the sexes, and has its roots in the dark years of World War One, when the nation’s young men departed en masse for the trenches. In their abrupt absence, women found themselves thrust from domestic drudgery into factories all over the country. 

It was tough work – many women, known as “munitionettes”, were tasked with creating armaments, and had to work amid dangerous machinery and noxious chemicals. Health and welfare advisors were sent by the government to keep tabs on the well-being of this new generation of workers, and encouraged sports as a respite from the harsh environment. 

Factories began to set up their own women’s football teams, and before long one team stood out as the most popular. This was Dick, Kerr’s Ladies FC, so-named for the Preston-based Dick, Kerr & Co munitions factory the players worked at. Founded in 1917, the team rapidly became the talk of the town, drawing thousands of onlookers to their very first match. As with other women’s teams, their games raised money for charity and the war effort, and the concept of females playing football was generally regarded as a wholesome novelty. But the sheer popularity of Dick, Kerr’s Ladies FC helped change that perception, and establish women’s football as a real, legitimate sport in its own right. 

As this popularity grew, there was a worry that the men’s game was in danger of being completely overshadowed. Frank Walt, secretary of Newcastle United, echoed widespread sentiment in the upper ranks of the FA when he declared that “the game of football is not a woman’s game” and “the time has come when the novelty has worn off and the charitable motives are being lost sight of, so that the use of the professionals’ ground is rightly withdrawn.” 

Yet there were possible political reasons as well. Teams like Dick, Kerr’s Ladies FC, as well as raising money for charity, had also been getting involved in left-wing causes, such as fund-raising for miners protesting wage cuts in 1921. As Barbara Jacobs, author of The Dick’s Kerr’s Ladies, points out, women’s football had “become a politically dangerous sport, to those who felt the trade unions to be their enemies”. That said, many men were appalled at the resolution. Major Cecil Kent, secretary of Liverpool FC, said that “the only thing I now hear from the man in the street is ‘Why have the FA got their knife into girls’ football? What have the girls done except raise large sums for charity and play the game? Are their feet heavier on the turf than the men’s feet?’” Women’s teams continued to play on non-FA pitches, but the lack of media visibility inevitably dimmed the game’s allure. It’s only now, all these decades later, that women players – picking up the baton from Lily Parr and other trailblazers – are being given their rightful place in the limelight. Something that fans have enjoyed so much about the women’s game is its authenticity, seen in players’ emotional reactions as well as in the way they play, and in their close relationships with fans. 

But this is something that money can change. So how can the women’s game maintain its authenticity as more money inevitably enters the mix? Where does the money currently come from? Most women’s teams are reliant on financial support from their club’s overall group and their affiliated men’s teams. Shouldn`t this stop. Does this not sound like housewives who depended on the bread winner. Now women work and many win even more bread than men. 

It`s time for the same to happen with women`s football. Independent and being supported, at least the same as men`s football is. What needs to change? In my opinion, simply the mindset of the top people the decision makers in football. In our case the GFA but the society has to help them and not criticise or stop them but encourage them to implement change for the good of our daughters who will become wives, mothers and grand mothers. No society can thrive without women. In fact, there can simply be no life without women. 

Where could more money come from? Of course, increasing attendances would help with income and investment (more money coming in means more money to spend). However, men’s teams at the highest level, such as the Premier League, get most of their money from broadcasting, followed by commercial or sponsorship opportunities (shirt sponsorship, commercial partners), with the smallest proportion from matchday attendance. This changes as you go down the men’s leagues with (very high) dependence on ticket sales in the lower leagues. The change all starts with You, the Fans. Are we capable of changing our own mindsets?

Changing mindsets and promoting inclusivity in women’s football is a collective effort that involves various stakeholders, with fans like you right at the top.

Here are a few ways fans can contribute to the growth and success of women’s football:

  • Attend Matches: Supporting women’s football by attending matches is a tangible way to show your interest and enthusiasm. Increased attendance can lead to higher revenue and investment in the sport.
  • Promote and Share: Utilize social media platforms and other channels to promote women’s football and share news, highlights, and stories about players and teams. This can help create more visibility and generate interest among a wider audience.
  • Challenge Stereotypes: Take a stand against gender biases and stereotypes associated with women’s football. Encourage others to appreciate the skill, athleticism, and competitiveness of the game, regardless of gender. 
  • Engage with Media: Reach out to media outlets and sports organizations to express your support for increased coverage of women’s football. Encourage them to provide equal exposure and resources to promote the sport. 
  • Support Sponsorship: Show support for companies and sponsors that invest in women’s football. Patronize their products or services and express appreciation for their commitment to equality and inclusion in sports.
  • Engage in Dialogue: Initiate conversations and discussions about women’s football with friends, family, and colleagues. Educate others about the history, achievements, and challenges faced by women in the sport.
  • Advocate for Equality: Support initiatives that aim to achieve equal pay, resources, and opportunities for women in football. Encourage sports governing bodies and organizations to implement policies and programs that promote gender equality.

It’s essential to recognize that changing mindsets and promoting women’s football requires a collective effort from society, including fans, players, clubs, sponsors, media, and governing bodies. By actively supporting and advocating for women’s football, fans can contribute to creating a more inclusive and respectful environment for the sport to thrive.

Be a fan of and help us help introduce change in our society.

The Revolutionizing Force To 3x3Eachsoccer Women’s Football

We at Gibraltar Wave FC have discovered a new sport #3x3eachSoccer. Our research has made it more apparent how #3x3eachSoccer benefits grass players and for a long time it has been a favorite and most fun session for many top teams especially in warmer times of the year. 

However it`s only recently been evaluated for its validity to player development in the way other small-sided games like futsal and the many other forms alternatively to the grass. But, it is clear now, #3x3eachSoccer is not only amazingly fun, but also an integral part of developing a more technical, tactical, & stronger soccer player and most importantly a future football game in its own right. 

I`m happy to say Reygadas Sports Group has taken #3x3eachSoccer under its wings. We shall soon be airborne.

The unique approach of 3x3eachsoccer in developing women’s football.

#3x3eachSoccer helps maintain players on their toes. A talented player shall no more sit on her laurels and wait for the ball to come before she begins to play. Players work harder without any coach demanding it. 

Simply putting players on the sand will not only do this but also make players quicker, stronger, and tremendously more confident on the ball. 

Everything you do on the sand is 100% transferable to improve the grass game and skills.  #3x3eachSoccer is the perfect complement to the grass game as it is played in the air when trained correctly.  Adding #3x3eachSoccer training as part of the curriculum will expedite and certainly help recreational to advanced players reach another level in skills and development.  

Running in High Heels

We have coined the term “Running in High Heels” which goes straight to the point of players being on their toes more. As coaches spend a lot of time telling players to be on their toes to get a quicker step to the ball. Many spend time doing various techniques from heel lifts, to “pitter-patter” speed steps, and speed ladder. But, when you run in sand correctly, Running in High Heels, with your toes entering first and your heels out of the sand (always, even when standing), it not only creates “starting blocks” under your feet, making you move 3-4 steps quicker over ten, but also develops the twitch muscles, tendons, and joints to react quicker once you go back to grass. Players coming from the sand will feel like they are floating on turf or grass especially after repeated sessions on the sand. If for no other reason this is the simplest and most advantageous motivation for coaches to put their player’s toes in the sand.

Lifting, “The new Juggling”

#3x3eachSoccer is played in the air when done correctly. Lifting to self is a technique we have coined “The New Juggling” because it is critical for all players to eventually be able to do it. It is also as frustrating and monotonous as our staple juggling at the beginning of each session. 

This is done primarily with the “Three Small Toes” doing the scooping and lifting with the big toe and second toe (long toe) providing balance. The significance of this training is three-fold and its benefits are tremendous.

First & Second, the action of scooping to self and lifting is developing the muscles on the outside of the leg (1st) and therefore the outside of the foot (2nd). This is something most coaches almost never do especially with younger players. The most coaches do is teaching players to dribble and touch with the outside of the foot because as we all know we run faster with the ball doing so. But, the action of lifting develops the outside of the foot touch, strength, as well as creating familiarity with flexing and locking the ankle in a way we do not teach in the grass.

All emphasis is “in-step” (shooting) and “inside of the foot” which is 100% inside of the leg development. “The New Juggling”, that of lifting the ball develops and strengthens the ability to lock the ankle. 

Third, this practiced technique now allows your players to have a far greater developed weapon in regards to scooping, shoveling, and lifting the ball for greater distances while standing still or even on the run. This is a savvy technique rarely developed on grass, but can be found more prevalent on the futsal court. It clearly gives players more choices about how to approach the ball when they have more mastery of the entire foot.

The emphasis of 3x3eachSoccer is to have fun while establishing the building blocks for the future. If you get players to scoop pass in beach competition you are way ahead of the game, but notice when players hit the grass they now have new technique not found as easy before being in the sand.


This is easy to explain, but more difficult to conceptualize. The first is the actual technique which NEEDS to be addressed by any coach taking players into the sand. The highest amount of injuries comes from players feet. Most of these injuries revolve around broken toes or getting “turf toe”. This is easily corrected which would eliminate a majority of injuries in beach soccer. 

When striking the ball in the sand you need to develop the technique of clenching your foot in the same sense as with your hand punching someone. As coaches, we do not normally tell our players to clench their toes inside their boots. Why would we? Except, if we would, the player would be striking with a tighter locked ankle and more solid predictable surface which would actually hit the ball harder and with more accuracy. 

Think of it this way…what creates a more solid and powerful strike? An open-handed, fingers extended, slap, or a closed handed punch? Wouldn’t it be logical to believe the same of your foot, although you cannot wrap your toes as profoundly as your fingers the surface is more predictable to control and be more solid.

Now, how does this eliminate the specter of toe injuries in beach soccer? It is really simple. As you learn the technique of kicking in the sand you curl your toes back. It is a learned technique which takes a few sessions to get used to…like “Running in High Heels”…but as you do this the player’s practice by walking around kicking the top inch (centimeters) of the surface.  The big toes and the rest are tucked so there is no drag. They are protected not only from the sand, but also much more from any contact which may be had. In addition, if they take this back to the grass and curl their toes in their boots you will quickly realize how much harder they strike the ball, like punching.

This does not even address the most important aspect which is hitting a ball on an uneven surface. Tell your players day 1, “NEVER HIT A STILL BALL IN THE SAND”, unless they clearly see it sitting on top of a ridge. This is because a “still ball” is usually sitting in a hole and doesn’t go anywhere and hurts when you kick it. 

A player develops the MENTALITY of slowing down the ball as it rolls in and out of holes in the sand they become adept at striking on the top of ridges. This comes back to the grass in a way which is simply so advantageous its hard to really express. But, in simple terms, a young player, who has already developed the opportunity of slowing down their mind through this repetitive action will inevitably have the skill to do so with every ball approaching them in the grass. Therefore making them calmer, more skillful, and therefore better quicker than simply only being on the grass and/or other flat surfaced pitch or field. The change in dynamics of the uneven surface predictably improves a players vision on the ball exponentially. 

Again, this really only scratches the surface. 

Gibraltar Wave FC wants #3x3eachSoccer to be extensively trained and we have a portfolio of the right coaches and introduce this spectacular sport which gives a great chance for development of grass players, especially girls and women and be a platform for girls and women to improve Body and Mind Health while offering a spectacular Gen Z sport for the billions of football lovers worldwide. 

Clubs, players, investors, broadcasters feel free to get in touch for more information.

We are working on having a #3x3eachSoccer this summer in the Bull Ring of Los Barrios. The most Spectacular, Cheapest and Healthest sport for all. This is #3x3eachSoccer.


The bright future of women’s football development with 3x3eachsoccer. In conclusion, 3x3eachsoccer is a revolutionizing force behind women’s football development. By prioritizing the development of the whole player and providing personalized attention, 3x3eachsoccer is helping female football players reach their full potential. With its unique approach to training and commitment to creating a supportive and inclusive sports culture, 3x3eachsoccer is poised to continue leading the way in women’s football development for years to come.

At Gibraltar Wave we play 11-a-aside soccer, futsal and invented and patented #3x3eachSoccer. In our first season, we qualified directly for the Champions League finals in Beach Soccer. We are specifically looking for sponsors to take the team to Nazaré (Portugal) where the Champions League finals in Beach Soccer will be held and also working to create a #3x3eachSoccer World Tour kicking of in Gibraltar streamed to the world for which we are looking for a broadcasting partner like DAZN. 

Our preferred sponsor

Ideally, we are looking for a sponsor who knows exactly how difficult it is to find sponsors in women’s soccer and who is willing to tread a common path with us. Furthermore, the brand should be willing to break new ground and work very closely with us, because only together can we achieve our goals. Our sponsor knows that every cent counts and that our players are all amateur.

Community Intergration and affiliation with Mons Calpe

Does partnering with men’s clubs help or hinder women’s football teams? Historically, women have been discouraged from involvement in sectors of society, including participating and competing in sport (European Commission Citation2014, United Nations Citation2019). This has especially been the case for traditionally male-dominated sports such as football (Caudwell Citation 2011). Football represents a typical example of strong gender bias, with women accounting for less than 10% of total registered players, 28% of the total administrative workforce, 25% of the total management staff and 7% of the total coaches (FIFA Citation2019a). Giulianotti (Citation1999) and Williams (Citation2007) indicate that football institutions have been historical active opponents of the women’s game. However, it can be argued that governing bodies have shifted towards becoming supportive of women’s football development more recently (Gammelsæter and Senaux Citation 2011).

In 2018, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) launched the first-ever global strategy for women’s football, in which it stated its goal for all its 211 National Associations (NAs) to have dedicated women’s football development programmes by 2022 (FIFA Citation2018). Actions of meso level institutions, such as NAs or public authorities responsible for sport policy making, are decisive for the advancement of the sport. According to Soss and Schram (Citation2007), policies can play a key role in altering conceptions and influencing public attitudes and perceptions. This is of particular importance to women’s football, due to it being positioned within a complex and gendered environment (Pfister Citation 2010, Allison Citation 2016, Citation 2017). Nonetheless, literature to date has dedicated limited attention to analyse NAs’ engagement with policies aimed at furthering the growth of women’s football (Bell Citation 2012, Kjær and Agergaard Citation 2013, Woodhouse et al. Citation 2019, Añorve Citation 2020).

We did our homework and decided in affiliating with Mons Calpe men`s team while still keeping Gibraltar Wave independent. It`s good to see UEFA and GFA interested in not only  Empowering women in and through football.

Gibraltar stands a much better chance of doing much better in women`s football than men`s as men`s football is much more advanced in Europe. However, the distance to the top in women`s football is shorter.

Over the last decade, women’s football has experienced an unprecedented period of growth. This is an achievement the industry as a whole can be most proud of.

Though, this is only the first step – a step in the right direction, of course – but only a first step all the same. There is still so much more work to be done to realise the game’s full potential.

The sustainability of the modern football club is built on three fundamental pillars: the men’s team, the women’s team, and the academy. UEFA have recently seen many men’s clubs, including some of the traditional heavyweights in Europe, investing in the women’s game and launching and developing successful teams. However, women teams also need to be “independent” to be able to grow on its own right.

The Future pillar of Football is Women`s football and the society should back efforts of clubs like Gibraltar Wave FC. The reality is that the growth of women’s football can only be achieved through taking creative action. This responsibility does not lie with just one organisation alone, but will require the whole women’s football community and its stakeholders to play their part. Improve  women’s football competitions and nurture the next generation of talented female players. 

I have been in the game long enough to fully understand the inequalities that exist and our ability to do something about it. I’m therefore proud Gibraltar Wave is doing something to change things but we need backing not from sponsors and from the authorities like GFA, UEFA and FIFA who to be honest are working hard on making things easier for us the the women`s game.

Inspiring creative action to help clubs drive a better tomorrow for women’s football Full scale gender equality in football is an ambitious goal but one that we and many embrace today. We need to work as a collective, from top to bottom, to be the changemakers needed to enable the women’s game to grow sustainably, We want to thrive and ultimately to prosper.

Gibraltar Wave is ‘first of its kind’ in Gibraltar and maybe in Europe too!! 

Football Fan App is another great platform that is kindly giving Gibraltar Wave exposure. Football for women needs all the support it can get. Liking a news story as we have seen many fans and readers do in Gibraltar Insight is an excellent start and makes us proud.

Women’s football and it’s development is like fighting the one eyed giant.

The management of Gibraltar Wave FC has set itself the task of promoting and advancing women’s football. For this reason, they have decided to establish an all-women’s football club. If it is difficult enough to promote women’s sport in a club where there are also men’s teams, it is even more difficult in an all-women’s club.

Even though everyone says that they should invest in women’s sports, it is precisely these advocates who follow up their own words with actions only to a limited extent. We want to look at two examples here and show that we somehow have a chicken-and-egg problem here.

A few months ago, our business manager was at a large sport and business event. Representatives of numerous clubs, large marketing agencies and globally operating companies meet there. One panel discussion was specifically about women’s sport and the need to promote it. The panel included a professional female racing driver and a representative of a credit card company. The credit card company representative made a compelling case for the importance of sponsoring women in sport. At the end of the session, Gibraltar Wave’s Business Manager had the chance to exchange a few words with the representative of the credit card company. Surprisingly, when asked how far the involvement would go, the answer was: “We’re focusing on some big players.”

Following the second example, which now follows, this statement should be classified.

In another session, an agency presented what they would have done for women’s football in the context of the Women’s European Football Championship and proudly presented their own social media campaigns, the follower numbers generated and what this had all brought to women’s football in general and will bring in the future. During the final Q&A session, a question from Gibraltar Wave FC was also addressed. “What has this done for sponsorship in women’s football?” The answer was not unsurprising: “A couple of the top clubs in the German Women’s Bundesliga were able to get new sponsors.” When asked what this would have to do with women’s football in general and how the grassroots would benefit, the presenters were somewhat embarrassed and stumbled to give a satisfactory answer. “Ehm… I’m sure the grassroots will benefit as well. That will come.”

All in all, these examples show where the problem lies. Women’s football is a purely amateur sport at grassroots level. Players and clubs have hardly any opportunities to generate sponsorship money. In every low-class men’s league, monthly salaries in the 3-digit range are paid in some places. In higher-level women’s leagues, it is often even difficult to find someone to sponsor a kit. In the highest leagues, women are constantly balancing their studies or careers with football. The grassroots, which is the future of the teams, leagues and new players, is neglected because they would rather be adorned with the top 3 or 5 teams. The companies are only concerned with reach, visibility and making a name for themselves with top teams, which often belong to the top clubs in men’s football. The grassroots suffer as a result. Now is the time to ensure equal opportunities in women’s football and to create a solid and sustainable structure. The financial needs in women’s football are much smaller and instead of giving large sums to a few, many clubs could be rewarded for their good work by distributing these sums evenly.

Anyone who has followed the international leagues in recent years will have noticed the following:

Whereas a few years ago there were clubs in the top women’s leagues that hardly anyone had heard of, today it is only the women’s teams of the top clubs from the men’s sector. Here, the sponsors, the structures and the money were already in place. Acquiring new sponsors is also much easier for them. Top clubs without big names were pushed down into the lower leagues. They have done the groundwork for decades, but then no longer get sponsors because they don’t have a big name. The best example is Turbine Potsdam in Germany. But also the 1. FFC Frankfurt (FFC = Women’s Football Club), which were integrated into the Eintracht Frankfurt club.

As far as the work in development for women’s football is concerned, it is like fighting against the one-eyed giant. The eye only focuses on a few big ones and the giant is just too strong to be defeated by the small ones in women’s football.

Development means First bringing new players to the Gibraltar football scene

Gibraltar Wave FC is happy to have brought many new players to the women`s football scene in Gibraltar who have gone on to other clubs in Gibraltar and even to the National team. Dahlia Salah,  Tiana Garcia, Gianelle Hanglin, Julia Lima, and the latest in the Gibraltar Natioanl team who is a Wave through and through  Ellen Dixon. We work hard to develop women`s football with the passion needed to turn the many challenges into a solution to benefit the development of women`s football in Gibraltar. 

Gibraltar wave FC has grown the female participation base and this shall help the continued and future growth of women`s football in Gibraltar.

We asked ourselves many questions but one that stands out is, How do you motivate a girl to play football?

Our brainstorming on this came up with answers that females like to belong to a women`s only football club, of which very few exist worldwide, and we are the first in the history of Gibraltar. Girls and women need to have a safe space in training and a group they feel comfortable with, a team in which all are encouraged to become role models for each other and especially for the new players we keep bringing on.

The growth in female participation is a major driver of our aspiration. I feel the big mistake in Gibraltar and elsewhere is to “force” men`s teams to have a women`s teams. I feel that the best way for women`s football to progress is to have women`s teams in their own right and even for women`s teams to be the ones who create a men`s teams and not the other way round as is currently the case, not just in Gibraltar, as I said, but worldwide.

Girls and women need an enjoyable experience and common sense tells me having clean toilets with doors, something that most boys and men toilets don`t have as many are simply urinals, is a must. Soap dispensers, hand dryers that work, sanitary bins and providing free sanitary products that females can help themselves to are small things with girls and women in mind. Now that Victoria Stadium is going to be refurbished this small issues need to be taken into account. Gibraltar can even me the example for the rest of the world, why not?

Being in an all-female environment allows young girls to be themselves because they are more comfortable. Girls will be more confident in their actions, more willing to try new things and make mistakes by trying again and again. Girls are less afraid to give constructive feedback in a more comfortable environment. Having all female environments allows female leaders and mentors to also feel more comfortable just like the players themselves and thus do a better job of helping the players. 

We do our best to promote all the positives of having a female friendly environment. This also involves marketing and promotion to targeted female audiences and the wider community so that the good work done in developing female teams doesn’t go unnoticed making us able to intake new players each year. 

Sport has the power to unite people in a way little else can. Sport can create hope. Breaks down racial barriers, laughs in the face of discrimination. 

Football speaks to people in a language they can understand. Said the great Nelson Mandela.  

The increased number of female coaches is also one very important way to develop women`s football. We work hard on making our members feel valued and want to return. Have fun, socialise with friends in an active environment. Keep fit and healthy. See that they are improving. Experiences challenge and building confidence one little step at a time does work.

Now comes #3x3eachSoccer. We at Gibraltar Wave FC firmly believe that Gibraltar can and will become a force in sports through this new modality of Beach Soccer, #3x3eachSoccer patented by me and in partnership with our friends at Victoria Beach Soccer of Keko Rosano would like this to be a Gibraltar creation. Being a small nation with small rather then extensive beaches, what better than #3x3eachSoccer? This #3eachSoccer modality makes Beach Soccer accessible, even more spectacular with airborne goals counting as 2, but not headers amid continued investigations and studies into the potential health risks associated with regularly heading of a ball, which could include dementia and easy on logistics. I discovered this taking the team to UEFA Beach Soccer Champions League in nazare, Portugal in June 2022.

#3x3eachSoccer has been catered for Gen Z, health for urban dwellers in easy to build in urban areas catering for the millions of football players and billions of football fans worldwide who love being entertained playing and watching the king of sports. The paradise surface, beach sand, can also be used by children to play and build their sand castles!

Two halves of 10 minutes make #3eachSoccer tailor made for Gen Z for watching on a mobile phone. A whole match of Highlights!

Womens football needs more Power of Role Models

We have kicked off season 2022/2023 and happy our app is help develop women`s football in Gibraltar.

The growth of football from the very beginning has been brought about by role models, Heros of the game which journalists and the press have pushed from day one to entice and grow fanbase and the love of the king of sports. Now, it`s also the queen of sports.

Who is the Christiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi in women`s football? Most football fans, including women can mention 100 men players but very few can even mention the last 4 The Best FIFA Women`s Players. 

Who has heard and follow Marta Vieira da Silva of Brazil, Melanie Behringer of Germany,  Lieke Elisabeth Petronella Martens of Netherlands, Deyna Cristina Castellanos Naujenis of Venezuela, Dzsenifer Marozsán born in Hungary representing Germany, Ada Martine Stolsmo Hegerberg of Norway, Megan Anna Rapinoe of the USA who may be the one who received more press mention as women`s football is stronger in the US than men`s, Alex Morgan who co-captained the United States women’s national soccer team with Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe from 2018 to 2020, Lucy Bronze of England, Pernille Harder of Denmark, Wendie Renard of France, Sam Kerr of Australia, Jennifer Hermoso of Spain all these players have been the Top 3 in the last few years of The Best FIFA Women Players nominations. If you have heard about them, how many fans know the clubs they play for or have played for?

Alexia Putellas of Barcelona is now starting to come to light. The first women player in world history to win two consecutive The Best FIFA Women Player Of The Year.

Now, the only people who have the “power” to create the much needed role models in women`s football are the football writers and all those in sports media. 

As for Team Role Models, 

1 – FC Wolfsburg 

One of the most accomplished women teams in the world FC Wolfsburg has reached the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League four times in 6 seasons! They won the title twice in 2013 and 2014. The team was founded as VfR Eintracht Wolfsburg in 1973 and joined VfL Wolfsburg in 2003. It has performed remarkably well, winning the treble in the 2012-13 seasons. 

2 – Arsenal FC  

The most successful English women team belongs to Arsenal. The Arsenal WFC has won 49 trophies in England including 12 Women’s Premier League titles. They have also won the Women’s Champions League in 2006-07. The team plays most of their matches at the Meadow Park in England. Sometimes, the female Gunners also use the Emirates stadium. 

3 – Olympique Lyon 

Probably the greatest women French team of all time, Olympique Lyonnais Féminin won their respective league 14 times! They are the reigning champions as well. Lyon is relentless in their league winning it 12 consecutive times. They have also been very successful in Europe, having won the Champions League five times and thrice in a row from 2015 to 2017. Lyon’s women team is probably the best women’s team in the entire world. 

4 – Barcelona Femeni 

The outstanding performances of Barcelona Femeni in recent seasons have not dropped one bit. Each season, they only get better and better. The recently concluded season was one filled with new milestones for the Catalans.

Baulgranes retained their league title by recording a perfect season (30 wins in 30 matches). They scored 156 goals and conceded just 11 as they achieved a 100 percent record.

Barcelona Femeni also won the Super Copa de Espana and Copa de Reina to clinch a domestic treble.

However, they failed to defend their Champions League crown, which they won in 2021. Barcelona made it to the final of the continental competition but lost 3-1 to Lyon.

Another milestone Barcelona Femeni achieved in 2021-22 was breaking the record attendance for a women’s football game twice at the Camp Nou. The first was in March 2022 versus Real Madrid (91,553), and the second in April 2022 against Wolfsburg (91, 648).

Women’s football is at a juncture. The traditional powerhouse leagues in the US and Australia are warily watching as the sleeping giants of women’s football in Europe finally awaken.

I don`t think it will take long for our GFA to “impose” that all clubs have a women`s team or become an affiliate of one but not just for their licenses but conviction that women have and need the same rights and facilities, and maybe even more than men. Brands will also soon realise that over 75% of all consumption on earth is Done or Decided by women. We all have mothers and grand mothers and most have wives and daughters too!!

Another sport that we at Gibraltar Wave FC want to help develop in Gibraltar is Beach Soccer. To this end, along with our friends at Victoria Beach Soccer we have patented the #3eachSoccer modality which is made even more spectacular making airborne goals, but not headers amid continued investigations and studies into the potential health risks associated with regularly heading a ball, which could include dementia, count a Two goals.

In our opinion, #3eachSoccer is a mana for broadcasting entertainment and caters for the millions of football players and billions of football fans worldwide.

Two halves of 10 minutes make #3eachSoccer taylor made for Gen Z and mobile watching, a whole match of Highlights!

Gibraltar Wave – A new star in the Women’s Football sky!

Only founded in March 2021, Gibraltar Wave is developing into a new star in the women’s football sky. Already in the first year of existence the club qualified for an international competition, the Euro Winners Cup which is effectively UEFA Beach Soccer Champions League!

Unique in Gibraltar’s football history is the founding of an all-women’s football club in March 2021. John Gontier, former owner of Europapoint FC – decided at the time to promote women’s football in one of the smallest countries in Europe. To this end he formed Gibraltar Wave FC.

The situation for football clubs in Gibraltar is not easy from home. With a population of around 35,000 in an area of ​​6.5 km², the number of potential players for a women’s team is finite. Until 2021, the game was played in teams of 9 and there were only three clubs in championship operations. Since the 2021/22 season, teams of 11 have been playing and two new teams have started playing. This included Gibraltar Wave FC.

As a newcomer, you were not allowed to sign players from other clubs and were therefore dependent on players who had either not played for a long time or who dared to take their first steps in football. The training opportunities are also very limited and training times and places are assigned and rotated by the Gibraltar FA. The times and locations can change weekly, making continuous training almost impossible.

Another restriction is that at least seven local players must be in the squad and also play. There is a lower restriction for the men’s teams. Despite all the difficulties, in the first year Gibraltar Wave managed to qualify for an international competition – the Women’s Euro Winners Cup 2022 in Beach Soccer in Nazaré (Portugal). In Gibraltar the season runs from the end of September to March. The futsal season starts immediately afterwards and in the summer you play on the beach. The club was also a highlight for the FIFA Embassadors in Nazaré and the team was consequently invited by the organizers to the World Winners Cup.

The goals are very ambitious and they want to qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League qualifying round within the next three to five years. In order to position themselves better and create reasonable club structures, Gibraltar Wave hired a German manager, Heiko Mock, who primarily takes care of the club’s structures and is responsible for acquiring sponsors. With Blocksport, an international company was won that provides the club with its own professional engagement app. JOMA has started as an outfitter from the 2022/23 season, which shows how attractive it is for sponsors and partners.

As the holder of a UEFA coaching license, Heiko Mock helps and supports the coaches in their daily work, including with his experience as a coach of youth, men’s and women’s teams offering his knowledge to benefit Ernest Tomsett and Anthony Celecia whenever they need some any guidance.

The squad has been significantly strengthened for the new season and talks are currently underway that Miss Gibraltar 2022 will present the new team wear collection.

Nine host cities, 16 teams, 26 days, 31 matches, 95 goals

Some memorable goal celebrations, many wonderful parties all around the world, even that of Gibraltar Wave players, and one historic, transformative, spectacular event.

Football has come home and it`s the girls that brought it! What a night!! What a performance!! What a time to be involved in women`s football, to see our Lionesses put on such a show. The impact, investment and vision of The FA playing out in front of a home crowd. Bring on Wembley!

Football is all about creating dreams but even the most ambitious and imaginative young players require some initial inspiration.

Before they can begin envisaging being part of a trophy-winning team or start dreaming about scoring goals galore, budding Waves need role models to whom they can relate and the Lionesses have provided that at the Women’s Euro 2022. 

This is the push The Gibraltar Women`s National League, GWNL 2022/2023 needs and Gibraltar Wave FC is preparing to play its part in our second season of existance.

We also hope to see the legacy of WEURO 2022 extend beyond the pitch. The effects for women’s football in England will be seismic, and we hope Gibraltar Wave and Gibraltar as a whole joins in this wonderful wave to maximise the uplift for women building careers in football media, finance, admin, comms, governance, player care and representation, and all other roles on and off the pitch.

And it’s not just about the winning team!  It`s development of the whole women`s football industry that Gibraltar Wave strives for.

We are now the first club to have our own app in Gibraltar and all footy fans who download the app will have the chance of playing our MatchDay Prediction Game to test their gut instincts combined with their knowledge of The English FA Super League and thus also have livescore of the matches as well as the classification tables. Who`s going to show off the trophy this time, who gets relegated and fans will also have the chance of competing to see who tops the Leaderboard week in week out and can even brag in the fan talk, a kind of WhatsApp for all footy fans, the Wavey fan community of women`s football.

We can all predict, just join in. Don`t worry if you don`t understand a lot about women`s football or even football at all. Maybe it`s better if you don`t have a clue, you will still be excited about predictions. Just download the app and join in the fun. We are planning on giving a surprise to the Leaderboard winner at the end of the season. Suggest what sensible prize you would prefer and we will take it into account.

Be a member, a sponsor and get involved in this exciting movement taking place to change how women`s football and Beach Soccer is helping the community improve its Body and Mind Health. Recast,, Gibraltar Insight and many others are already contributing in this change for a better world.

And most important, all fans can also join in watching and following not just the matches of GibraltarWave FC but our trainings as well. Belonging to the Gibraltar Wave family gives everyone a chance of belonging, for excitement and looking forward to events while socialising with the players, coaches and other wonderful fans. This sense of belonging goes a long way to eradicating mental health and loneliness issues in our community.
