Jerseys of all six participating clubs, were also unveiled during a short draw ceremony in Panaji on Monday.

Arjuna awardee and ex-India captain Brahmanand Sankhwalkar and Eduard Battle Basart, Technical Director, Sesa Football Academy, picked up the chits and revealed the names of the competing teams.
The participating teams include Flaming Orange of Sporting Club de Goa, Panajim Dolphins of Panjim Footballers, Cuncolim Warriors of Cuncolim Union, SCC SOWS Football, Goa Velha Saints of Goa Velha SC and Albert's Princesses of Albert Developers Sports Club.

The Sesa Football Academy (SFA) has been doing this since its inception in 1999. The organisation has now taken the lead to harness and provide a platform to the skilled and talented female footballers of
the state.
