I think women also can play football as much as men can.I agree that men are more popular than women in playing football.But,if a lot of supporting for women will be given, I dare say that skills of women will be developed than we expected.

i think not many people watch womens football, its not popular

I don't watch neither men's football nor women's football because I do not like, and I never heard about women's football, I mean in school there were matchs and those kinds of things in special events but I got more atention on other kinds of activities such as music, painting, dancing, etc.

In my opinion, It's because the football since was created has been more related to men, and over the years the people has got use to watching men's football. It doesn't mean that the women's football is bad or that they don't play as well as men. I consider they need more sponsors and the same support that receive men's football.

I think that don't more people watch women's football because it isn't professional. Men's football is more competitive than women's football. Also, there is a cultural conception than football is for men, but fortunately that is changing. Nowadays boys and girls practice football at scholl, because there aren't sports or games for boys and sports or games for girl, there are only sports and games!

People like men's football better because they grow up watching it. They were programmed to like men's football .

Hello everyone! I'm from Myanmar. I also want to connect in this conversation. As for me, I don't like women's football. That's true that football is for everyone but it's not suitable for women. Women also can play football as good as men but I don't like it.

In my point of view, most of the people don't know about it. I am not a huge fan of football games, so I never watch them. Women play football as well as men do.

I think that people get used watching men playing football, then now it's difficult to viewers changing their liking.

I like football so it is nice sports
