After the Hero Gold Cup 2019 where Myanmar emerged winners, the Women’s National Team will next play in the Turkish Women’s Cup scheduled to start in the last week of February.

The Turkish Women’s Cup is an invitational tournament held every year in Turkey. India are in Group A with Romania, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan while Group B is made up of defending champions France (B), Jordan, Northern Ireland and the hosts, Turkey.

Each team will play each other once in the group stage. The group toppers will play in the final. There are additional matches to determine third, fourth, fifth and sixth places as well.

This tournament will be act as valuable experience ahead of the SAFF Women’s Championship in March and the AFC Olympic Qualifiers Round 2 scheduled in April.

We are committed to provide the best of exposure to the Senior Women’s Team. The experience of playing against stronger Teams will serve them in good stead prior to the SAFF Championship, and obviously the Olympic Qualifiers. I need to thank SAI and the MYAS for their support.

Mr. Kushal Das, AIFF General Secretary

The Indian team will arrive in Turkey on February 20 and their fixtures are as follows:

February 27: India vs Uzbekistan.

March 1: Turkmenistan vs India.
