Málaga CF Femenino players, Encarni and María Ruiz were presented with the Diputación de Málaga’s ‘Reconocidas 2018’ award today, Wednesday 7th March, to mark the occasion of International Women’s Day.

These accolades are directed at all those women and entities that individually or as a group played a key role in the history of the municipalities of Málaga province. In the case of the Malaguistas, they represent the villages of Villanueva del Rosario – where Encarni is from - and Almáchar, where María Ruiz was born.

Statments by Encarni

Thrilled with the award

“People from my town called me to tell me I was going to receive this award. It’s important for a place like Villanueva del Rosario, with only 3,000 inhabitants. I’m absolutely delighted”.

Recognition of women’s football

“You see more and more all the time. Now the girls in the Academy are asking if they can come and see us, and we always try to set a good example as an elite team. Little by little Cártama is filling up further, which is an absolute joy because the fans make the matches more fun and give us a boost”.

Statements by María Ruiz

“I was very happy when they told me about the award. It’s important to me, but especially my village, – Almáchar – and for women’s sport. We are garnering more and more support which we’re very grateful for. Every day there are new steps in that direction”.
