Randy Waldrum, the head coach of the Super Falcons, is happy that his club has been invited to participate in the Revelation Cup in Mexico.
Next month, the former African champions will compete in the four-nation invitational event alongside the hosts Mexico, Colombia, and Costa Rica.
The match will be a part of the group’s training for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
“We are ecstatic about being invited to the Revelation Cup. As an American, I am quite familiar with Mexico, Costa Rica, and Colombia, which is also a significant adversary. It is a privilege to participate in these games, Waldrum said, according to the Mexican Football Federation’s official website.
The opportunity for supporters to witness National Teams that they are not accustomed to will aid in the development of women’s football, too.
“The Revelation Cup offers a chance to observe other teams’ playing styles. Teams from South America and the Concacaf can teach us a lot.
“Women’s football needs to develop more, and we need to hold more of these competitions.
“Our players have the chance to experience another kind of football because of the way the game is played around the world.”
There will be a double header and round robin format for the competition.
The Super Falcons face South American runner-up Colombia in their opening encounter of the tournament on February 15 before playing Mexico on February 18 and Costa Rica on February 21, 2023.
