The Karen Women's National Team
Strength in ourselves + inspiration for others. We are excited to announce the formation of the Karen Women's National Soccer Team, an all-refugee football (soccer) team representing the Karen people around the world. Currently the team will be based in the United States with the players being refugees from Burma and Thailand. This team will be a significant step for women, showcasing and legitimizing them as professional athletes. The driving force of this team will be the equality of women, giving hope to all in the community and pushing them to set their sights high.
The Karen Football Association is a member of the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA). Through this organization we will be playing tournaments with other countries and football associations.
During the Spring and Summer of 2019 we will connect with players, evaluate talent, and work on our first Karen Women's National Soccer Team training camp in the United States. We are excited for what is to come in the future. Make sure to follow us on social media for all of the updates. If you have questions you can contact us here.
