FoOtBaLl Is OnLy FoR gUyS!🙄
Yes they are ladies! And yes they play football with so much joy and hunger for success. This can also happen in Nigeria but before we get to that stage, there are quite a number of things we need to correct. Welcome to today’s blog!😍 I am glad yor’re here. Today we are discussing about Women Football and Sports generally. Kindly pay rapt attention as you read through.
Out of every ten Nigerian lady you know, you can only find a maximum of three who would be interested in football or sports in general. Have you ever bothered to ask why? Let me quickly show you something.
Here's the first myth that's hindering many ladies from performing in sports: They carry the ideology that sports is for males because of the level of energy that is being dissipated into it. It’s in the African ideology to believe anything that involves use of strength and power is masculine. Females generally regard themselves to be of lesser power and energy so they believe that things that require energy do not concern them.
The second and most annoying myth is that females think that Football or Sports is a total waste of time. I simply cannot count the number of ladies who have told me that they don't understand how I can use two whole hours to sit down and watch a football match. In fact, some say that they’d rather sleep than watch a football match. But if you’re a lady reading this let me open your eyes (if you are male, please ensure that invite a lady to read. It would help them).
Do you know this lady below:
This lady right here earns nothing less than 16,000 Euros every week according to the Spanish Top Division Women Football Association. That's nothing less than 7 million naira weekly asides bonuses that come from winning trophies and becoming an ambassador for different brands! You might want to read that again. And just so you know, she is a Nigerian!
Yesterday night, this Barcelona Femeni team played a match against Real Madrid female team in the Camp Nou in front of a crowd of over 91,000 people! It’s a world record! Absolutely incredible!
Do you know how much that match would generate for the team and the club generally? A single ticket to watch a match in that stadium costs nothing less than 150 Euros. That’s about 69,000 naira. Now multiply this figure by 91,553. I’d leave you to do the mathematics.
Someone somewhere earns at least 7 million naira weekly (not monthly) because she is following her passion in sports and you are there thinking about how to get a white collar job that pays nothing more than 200k monthly whilst you know you can succeed in the world of sports. Don't cheat yourself please. If you settle for less and you don't become as successful as you dreamt, it would be nobody's fault. You would have yourself to blame in the long run.
As for me, I am not female but I know for sure that someday when I get to give birth to a female child, she will surely play sports and make cool money. I don't know about you.😌
PS: I am a Barcelona fan and this Barca Femeni girls are giving me joy. They haven't lost or drawn a match all season and they have played almost 40 matches. You can read that again if you didn't get it. Those girls are incredible and as a female, you can be too.
Kindly drop your comments and remember to share. See ya tomorrow.🥰🥰
