Munich (dpa / lby) - According to the Bavarian Football Association (BFV), female footballers have played a point game for a men's team in the amateur field for the first time. In the B-Class Cham/Schwandorf 2, this premiere came on Sunday. Two players played for FC OVI-Teunz II in the match against SC Altfalter II (1:6). At its association day at the end of June, the BFV created the opportunity for women to play league games with men upon request.
"It's an attempt, we see the procedure as a kind of pilot project. We will closely follow this process by not just creating the opportunity, but by approving the right to play with a simple and uncomplicated application. We want to know in fact which clubs , regions and age groups," explained Sandra Hofmann, chairwoman of the association's women's and girls' committee in Bavaria.
