Normally starting the second week of February, the Robbie Webber Youth League began one week earlier to allow for preparations for the AFC U17 Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers Group G that will be contested in Guam beginning Apr. 22. Guam’s U17 Women’s National Team will play the tournament’s opening match against the Philippines at 7 p.m. and will next play against Lebanon Apr. 24 at 7 p.m. The final match of the qualifiers will feature Lebanon and the Philippines on Apr. 26, also at 7 p.m. Guam will be hosting a centralized AFC tournament for the first time in a decade after previously hosting the AFC U16 Women’s Championship Qualifiers Group D in 2012.

In the meantime, the Robbie Webber Youth League, in its third season back since the COVID19 pandemic halted all sports leagues in 2020, will feature matches on Saturdays through to Apr. 1, with the season-ending Jamboree set for Apr. 8.
