Atiriya Narayan Ardikey

Atiriya Narayan, the Mumbai native, started playing football because it was the only sport that her school offered at the time. She was 8 years old when she played her first inter-school match and that’s when she knew that it was something special and something that she felt connected with. 

From then on, the winger went on to represent the state of Maharashtra on multiple occasions, the first one being in 2015 at the All India Sub-Junior Nationals. Since then, she has represented the state at the junior and senior national championships.

Atiriya has impressive experience of playing at the first IWL Qualifier with Mumbai’s Bodyline Sports Club and of being the Vice-Captain of Maharashtra’s Junior team. This is also her second successive season with FC Goa.
