Fayza Haidar entered the field of football from a young age, and practiced this sport with love and passion as a player and coach, and her Upper Egypt origins, which belong to Luxor Governorate, did not prevent her from creating this sport
She was certified by the English Football Association as the first Egyptian lecturer in the game, and also became the first woman to coach a men's soccer team in the country, opening new horizons for women's soccer in Egypt.
Fayza Haidar joined Helwan General Club in the first women's football season in Egypt in 1997, then continued her career with the Aviation Club in 2003, and won the league championship for the same club in 2005.
Fayza says to Sky News Arabia: "I am from Upper Egypt, and the subject of playing football for me was not easy, as the Upper Egyptian society has its traditions. I faced opposition at first, and then I was able to convince them of what I do, to the extent that they follow my media interviews in cafes because of My preservation of the Upper Egyptians and religious traditions, as well as my commitment to wearing the hijab, and their admiration for what I do after being honored by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Mrs. Intisar El-Sisi, as well as the British Ambassador to Egypt. These honors proved to my family that I am doing a good thing.
