GWTFL Hosts Japanese Women’s Tackle Football Team SUNDAY at Raiders Field in Tiyan


Guam – The Bud Light Guam Women’s Tackle Football League (GWTFL) is proud to announce that for the first time on Guam, an international women’s full-tackle football team from Osaka, Japan will be coming to compete in a sixxes fellowship scrimmage game hosted by the GWTFL.

The F.F. Langulls from Osaka, Japan will be arriving on Guam at the end of this month to go head-to-head with Guam’s finest female athletes in a football scrimmage scheduled for 10am on September 22, 2013. The scrimmage will be held at the Guam Raiders Field in Tiyan.

The Bud Light GWTFL, who just finished its second season, is excited and thrilled at the prospect of a friendly scrimmage with an international team.

“It is wonderful to see that the interest in female full-tackle football is growing and that the GWTFL and its teams are gaining international recognition,” said Carlina Charfauros, public affairs officer of the Bud Light GWTFL.

All 8 teams of the GWTFL 2013 season are invited to join. The 8 teams are Guam Lady Raiders, Iron Maidens, Island Stunnerz, Lady Spartans, Ruff Ryders, Sindalu, Steel Blazers and Team Legacy.

Coach Gonzalo “Gonzo” Fernandez, head coach of Sindalu, has committed his time and efforts to organize the GWTFL players interested in participating.

“Establishing a relationship with football teams from Japan and other places in the region will enable us to take our game and show the world that we can compete at the highest level. Hopefully, the next time they come, we can engage in an international championship game,” added Coach Gonzo.

Football fans, family and friends are invited to join the GTWFL and the F.F. Langulls for their fellowship scrimmage where a high-level of energy and love of the game is guaranteed.

“We’d like to thank the Guam Raiders Football Association for allowing us to use their field for this event. It is essential that we as football lovers work together to grow the sport, both locally and internationally,” said Marge Leon Guerrero, president of the Bud Light GWTFL.

“We’d also like to thank Ambros, the official sponsor for the GWTFL; Domino Lux International; Guam International Boxing; and Lucky Supplies for their continued support and generous donations despite the official season ending,” she continued.
