Bud Light women's soccer expands with second division

[March 13, 2017 - Harmon, Guam] The Guam Football Association women’s committee officially expanded the Bud Light Women’s Soccer League with the launch of the W2 division Sunday in an effort to meet the demand of the growing number of women wanting to play up from recreational soccer.

“The overall objective is to get more women playing soccer at a level that continues to challenge them,” said GFA women’s administrator Grace Martinez. “When we started with the Docomo Pacific Soccer Moms League in 2013, many players moved up from that league to the intermediate recreational league a year later, and now are looking for another challenge. We created the W2 division to introduce those players to a more competitive environment, which we hope will eventually become the bridge for many players to the Premier Division of the Bud Light Women’s Soccer League.
