Egyptian Women's Premier League
Tutankhamun Football Club (TUT FC) have etched their names in history, clinching the 2023/24 Egyptian Women's Premier League title with two matches to spare – a huge milestone for TUT FC and the entire Right to Dream community.

Not only has TUT FC secured domestic glory, but they’re poised to get their first taste of continental football, having sealed their place in the CAF Women's Champions League UNAF Qualifiers - the North African qualification tournament for the CAF Women's Champions League.

Despite entering the top-flight just a year ago, the young TUT FC squad have already secured their second trophy, having lifted the 2022/23 Egypt Cup title last season. They’re quickly setting a new benchmark for excellence, showcasing the immense potential within women's football in Egypt.

“Big credit to the coaching staff and players for this unbelievable achievement. They’ve proved to everyone that when there is trust & support in women’s football, results will follow suit,” said Mariam Abouhegazy, Head of Women & Girls at Right to Dream Egypt and Sporting Director at TUT FC.

“The Mansours, believed in the vision from day 1 and without their and the entire Right to Dream community’s support, none of this would have been possible,” she added.

Echoing Mariam’s sentiment, our commitment to women’s football extends beyond TUT FC. It’s a philosophy shared across the Right to Dream community.

This vision comes to life through our girls’ academies in Ghana and Denmark, FCN women’s team, and graduates including Kathrine Kuhl, currently playing at Everton on loan from Arsenal, and Princess Marfo at Bay FC. Their personal and collective journeys highlight the impact of empowering women in football and inspire talented young girls and women in our community and beyond.
