Montse Tomé Paves the Way as First-Ever Woman to Coach Spain Women’s National Football Team

Montse Tomé has been named head coach of the Spain women’s national team this makes her the first woman ever to be appointed to the role. 

Tomé was the assistant coach to the sacked Jorge Vilda during the recently concluded 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia.

Capped four times by Spain, Tomé is a former player with Oviedo Moderno, Barcelona and Levante, she was a Spanish league champion with the Granotas in 2007/08.

After hanging up her boots in 2013, Tomé initially carved out a career as a primary-school PE teacher. However, she could not resist the lure of her lifelong passion and, after securing her coaching badges, she returned to soccer as Vilda’s assistant.

The Asturian is slated to be officially unveiled by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) next week on the 15th of September where she will also announce her first Spanish squad ahead of La Roja’s Women’s Nations League opener against Sweden. 

The freshly-crowned world champions, who beat England to win their first global title last month, will be battling for qualification for the Olympics in the newly-created Nations League.

They will also face Switzerland and Italy in Group A4.
