“We have decided in the Board of Directors to withdraw the Women’s Futsal team from the AFA Primera División B 2021 tournament.

What happened was very serious and it is precisely the opposite of the ethical and sporting values ​​that we promote in our Institution, which has 125 years of glory and a pioneer in Argentine football.

Dismissing the DT, the main person responsible for the events, does not seem to us to be a sufficient measure, since it does not make sense to qualify for the playoffs in the way that was achieved.

We submit to the eventual sanctions that the Disciplinary Court stipulates just for the situation of public knowledge.

BANFIELD is way above the people and the juncture of a tournament; and anyone who wears our shield on their chest should know what that honor means.

We will work on the containment and education of our athletes and we will continue to promote from our Club the values ​​that made BANFIELD a respected, honorable institution and an example for Argentine soccer and sports ”.
