Theresa Maguraushe left the country on Thursday afternoon headed for Amsterdam, Netherlands, where she will attend a two-day women in football leadership workshop

Ms Maguraushe will be among an elite group of female football leaders at a networking programme which will be graced by the FIFA General Secretary, Fatma Samoura.

Several female football leaders across the globe will meet in Amsterdam on the 15th of July for a convention organised by the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), in association with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

Among other things, the weekend convention will act as a follow-up programme for all participants, following their previous participation in the FIFA Female Leadership development Programme and the UEFA Women in Football Leadership Programme.

The event will provide women within international football with the possibility to interact, share notes as well as enhance individual leadership skills in order to come up with tailormade solutions to counter challenges faced by women in football.

Ms Maguraushe is among the only ten female leaders in football from Africa who were invited to partake in the important capacity-building workshop.

Previously, she has been to Switzerland and Netherlands, among other destinations, where she exchanged ideas with other female leaders from various countries.

While in Netherlands, Ms Maguraushe will also watch the opening match of the Women’s Euro 2017 campaign, between hosts Netherlands and Norway on 16 July.

Ms Maguraushe currently works as the women football administrator at the Zimbabwe Football Association headquarters.
