Nida Nazir, a nineteen-year-old girl has secured her position into the so-called men’s territory by becoming the first ever football player-cum-coach from Rambagh area of Kashmir.

Nida was only 10 when she started playing football. There were lots of challenges in front of her as football is considered to be a men’s game. But her parents recognized her talent and supported her throughout. Nida also applauds the moral and technical support provided by the Football Association of Kashmir.

She is currently studying at Women’s College in Srinagar and has already played 2 national women’s football tournaments. She now dreams of playing women’s international football tournaments.


The Logical Indian team wishes Nida a very best of luck for her future endeavors and also hails the efforts made by her parents. We also request all the parents to give their children a chance to excel at what they are interested in, instead of forcing them to become engineers, doctors or an MBA.
