The vice president of women’s football, Vitor Zanelli, considers it an obligation for the club to be champions in all sports. In this context, development includes trying to reduce the gap between girls and boys, who generally start at an earlier age:

I usually say, in men, when a boy reaches the age of 18, he usually has 8 to 10 years of training. For women, three to four max. We will change this scenario.

In Brazil, there are a few projects that are doing well at the base and we hope that this will increase. Our goal is to help with this promotion. We want to expand the opportunities and dreams of athletes. Today, we have some girls playing in Brazil U-20s who are part of the main team not out of necessity, but out of quality.

– We have developed a medium-term plan and are implementing all the steps we designed in a satisfactory manner. We want to reach the Libertadores, it’s our great goal. Now, in the middle of the year, we have news and fans are going to love it. We make a great team and the focus is to be the best in Brazil and the Americas. Our target is 2024. Can something be expected? Of course, that’s what we expect. We really believe in business.

Under-20 coach Celso Silva reinforces the idea that it is important that the work is directed to try to reduce the gap between girls in terms of football. He notes that coaching with the core team plays an essential role in this process:

We know that women’s football is growing and establishing itself. Girls who go through this process midway through still have some developmental gaps and we struggle to try to reduce that deficit. In light of this scenario, we work hard with professionals. Because the athletes are close and relocated, we try to bring more richness to the work. I think we are on an interesting path and we will achieve our goals in the short and medium term.

We are the largest audience in the world and the most engaged brand in Brazil. We are thinking of the market and, together with the Brazilian Football Confederation, CONMEBOL and other clubs, we want to make women’s football a great spectacle and an excellent business for everyone.
