Kosovo Rugby Federation elects woman president

Unread postby ragbicoach » Fri, 06 Mar 2020, 12:55

From Kosovo Rugby Federation Facebook page:

"Meet our new President!

Yesterday, Afërdita Bytyçi was elected as the new President of the Kosovo Rugby Federation. After her tireless and exemplar work as the Vice President of the Federation, now Afërdita will step up to the role of the President. We would also like to congratulate Dardan Gashi, who becomes the new Vice President of the Federation.

Best of luck to both of you!"

Are there any other federations/unions with female presidents?

Good luck to the new Kosovo Rugby president
I don't remember, have you already debuted internationally with a Kosovo national team?

Not yet, but are considering entering National teams (men's and women's) in the rugby 7s at the World Games in Paris this July

Nice, it would be great.
But we would like to see you also in the Euro 7s Championship, soon or later
