KTFF bids to host women’s Conifa cup in the TRNC

The Cyprus Turkish Football Association (KTFF) has put in a bid to the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (Conifa) to stage its women's world cup in North Cyprus in 2019.

The country was the venue last year for the men's European Cup of Conifa – an organisation for unrecognised states, isolated dependencies and cultural regions who are not part of world football's mainstream body, Fifa.

Çatalköy's Acapulco resort last month played host to Conifa's annual general meeting and the draw for its 2018 men's World Football Cup, which will see the TRNC do battle with 15 other teams from May 31 to June 9 in London.
