Head Coach, Charlie Avila, believes the strength his team has is their unwavering discipline and concentration:

“I am very proud of my team the Bulldogs FLAMES F.A. They have worked so hard for this and I trust all of them will come out and give their all on the field.

I wish everyone who loves American football to come and support the players. These ladies go all out and there’s nothing to envy the men’s league. It’s a Championship game in which we will see lots of action from both teams that will give their all to become the first Women Champions in Costa Rica… You just can’t miss it.”
