Statements to MCFTV

Málaga CF Femenino player, María Martí highlights the importance of these events to raise awareness in society about equality: “It’s good that they know what we do on a daily basis as players, how we live, and the sacrifice and effort women have to make to fulfil their objectives”.

Karina Socarrás, her teammate on the women’s squad affirms that “we’re very close to achieving equality throughout the world. Everything takes time, but you can appreciate it”.

With Málaga CF, equality goes by the flag. Almost half of the Club’s employees are women. Within our youth ranks and school we have 150 female players, including the women’s first team”, says Basti.
