About coach Irina Giurgiu

Bucharest, Romania

Irina has been involved in the Romanian Women's Football Association since 2010. She has been participating throughout the years and working with different projects organized by the Romanian Football Federation. These projects enabled her to promote football for girls and to increase the awareness of the sport across Romania. 

Over the last 5 years Irina continuously specialised, and obtained all the UEFA coaching licenses, culminating in her UEFA A Coaching License in March 2018. She was also involved in the Federal School of Coaches, particularly focusing upon delivery of the UEFA B Coaching License for Women's Football. In the future, Irina will be leading, planning and organising all the UEFA B Coaching License courses for women. 

My motivation to be part of this special GGWCup & Erasmus+ Programme project

“I wish to share with other women my experience and passion. I really like to work with people and children, I enjoy every time I'm called to be part of a project. I like to volunteer and help develop female football.”

From Irinas Facebook post: “Tot ce îți dorești se poate întâmpla, trebuie doar să lupți pentru visul tău! De la această idee a pornit prezentarea mea de la evenimentul She Did it ! Inspirational women stories în care am vorbit despre drumul meu în fotbalul feminin!”

#TakeTheBall Romania series with current and former athletes

“Începem seria #TakeTheBall România cu actuali și foști sportivi, care susțin proiectul Global Goals World Cup și echipa Dream Team în lupta pentru egalitate de gen! Suciu Florica este fostă jucătoare și căpitan al echipei Independența Baia Mare. Florica a promovat fotbalul feminin în Baia Mare prin calitatea ei de jucătoare, antrenoare și profesoară de Educație Fizică. „O fată are dreptul să practice orice sport dorește, fără să îi fie rușine sau frică de prejudecățile celor din jur! Iar fetele care joacă fotbal sunt puternice și ambițioase, demonstrând că și ele POT practica acest sport” este de părere Florica.”
