Alisa Schlierike has been appointed to the newly-formed role of Women’s Legacy and Inclusion Manager role for Central Football.

The role is designed to maximise the benefits for the women’s game from the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the New Zealand Football Legacy Starts Now plan. The plan sets out how to increase the reach, participation and experience of females involved in football.

Schlierike is already employed by the Federation in a part-time development administrator position, and is completing a Bachelor of Sports and Exercise Science. She has in-depth club knowledge and experience.

She told Central Football’s website: “This coming year is a huge opportunity for us to create a positive and lasting impact on the women’s game and I can’t wait to get started in this new role.

“We have some great initiatives to roll out to support clubs and participants, and the co-hosting of the Women’s World Cup in New Zealand is a one-in-a-lifetime event that will be huge for the game.”

The federation says its plan includes initiatives around women’s leadership in the game, coach education, match official recruitment and development and some potential enhancements to the traditional formats of the game, whilst also providing alternative format opportunities to all.

Central Football CEO Darren Mason said:

“We were fortunate to have several really good quality applicants for this role when we advertised it, and Alisa was a standout candidate. We couldn’t be more pleased to have made this appointment.

“Alisa understands the needs of the role, has great experience as a coach, administrator, player and parent, and we believe she is a great fit to deliver on our goals in 2023 and beyond.”

Schlierike takes up the new role on February 20, 2023.
