Having ended the year at number 136th in the Fifa/Coca-Cola Women's World Ranking, the perception in the senior Women’s camp is that they can continue their ascension up the global standings, especially with a new “progressive and transformative” competition platform set to be introduced by CONCACAF next year.
World champions the United States will see out the year in pole position, with Germany, France, Netherlands, and Sweden completing the top five.
Speaking with the Bermuda Women’s National Team coaching staff, they are excited about the future.
The trio welcomed the move by CONCACAF to launch a new senior women's national team calendar which will begin in 2021 and include major, centralized summer tournaments in 2022 and 2024.
The move by the confederation is said to be in keeping with its CONCACAF-W pillar, the philosophy that drives the development of the women's game across its subcontinental survey — North and Central America and the Caribbean.
According to CONCACAF, the new calendar prioritizes providing more official match dates for all CONCACAF Women's senior national teams, and ensures there is “elite competition to showcase the highest level of women's international football”.
Through this new calendar, CONCACAF will more than double the number of official senior women's national team matches compared with the existing cycle of competitions.
