The U-17 women’s team left Haiti on Monday afternoon to Minnesota where they will play 3 matches (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday).
They will remain in the United States for a week longer to train with the courtesy of the US Government, which offers a stay from 23 to 29 July. This is a very expensive trip for the Haitian Football Federation (FHF) which financed all the airfares and hotel fees of the first week.
The Haitian delegation is composed of 6 people, 14 players and two coaches Fiorda Charles and Esther Milord. Our Grenadières U-17 will be back on July 30th.
Our Grenadieres are determined to take advantage of this course and they have great ambitions for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, whose the third elimination phase will be played in Haiti from 16 to 23 October.
During their stay in Minnesota our players will be supported by former Haitian international Ricardo Pierre Louis, who will bring football equipment.
1,278 teams from 19 countries from more than 20 US states participate this year at the USA CUP in Minnesota. The teams from Manchester and Bayern will also compete as well as other top-level women’s teams.
