THE Fiji Football Association will be looking to establish women's soccer associations in all districts in a bid to spread the sport around the country.
A total of ten district teams have entered the Bargain Box women's Inter District Championship in Ba with Labasa being the lone team from the north.
Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said the parent body was doing its best in developing the sport.
He said the onus was on the district associations as well to develop women's soccer.
"Development of women's soccer has started in many districts," Patel said.
"This is positive for Fiji FA. We look forward as we go along that women's football will be a force to reckon with Fiji FA in years to come.
"If you look at the world, women's football has more popularity now. The FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany last year was a huge success attracting sold-out stadiums.
"We would like the district associations to take up the onus of developing women's football in their area. We need bodies to be established to run their own local league competitions also in different age groups. We want it to run parallel with men's football in the country.
"The Pacific Games is in 2015 in Papua New Guinea. It is mission gold for the men's and women's teams. The players selected at this year's women's IDC would mature by then and they would be in their prime age-group for the Pacific Games."
The Fiji women's team won the bronze medal at the Pacific Games in New Caledonia in 2011.
