Quote from: Tom62 on May 11, 2021, 05:40:21 PMAs of the 2021/2022 season, it will be possible for women in amateur football to play in category A for men, reports the KNVB. The fact that women can now also play in the A category for men is a historic moment for amateur football in the Netherlands and worldwide.Jan Dirk van der Zee, KNVB amateur football director: ,,Until now, mixed football was possible in the entire youth competition in the Netherlands. However, once women reached senior age, they had to choose between playing in a women's league or continuing to play mixed in the B category. Based on the current zeitgeist and recent research results, we no longer see any reason to hold on to this and opt for equality and diversity. We want girls and women to find a suitable place in the football landscape based on their qualities and own ambitions."
