Riga United FC would like to congratulate Liene Vāciete on being called up for next’s week Baltic Cup competition and on-loan player Selga Whitmore for the same competition but in the U15’s category.

This season, striker Liene Vāciete has stood out for Riga United becoming joint top scorer and tied as the 5th highest scorer in the Sieviešu Futbola Līga with 6 goals.  She will join former Black Cats player Ieva Bidermane, who currently lives and and plays her football in Berlin (FC Victoria 1889).

On-loan midfielder Selga Whitmore has settled in nicely to life in the Riga United FC Reserves, putting in some fine tenacious performances. This is Selga’s debut season in women’s football after being loaned to Riga United FC from FS Metta/LU.  And the relationship between the two clubs has proven to be a very positive one with United’s Liene Vāciete now coaching young girls’ teams for both Riga United FC and for FS Metta/LU, while two young FS Metta/LU players have joined Riga United on loan for the season.

The Baltic Cup is an annual tournament between Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. In recent years, a team has been invited to the tournament too. This year it’s The Faroe Islands. It will take place in Riga between the 4th-7th August.

Please come along and support both Latvian teams.  Entrance is free and your support will be greatly appreciated by all concerned. The national senior team will play at Arkādijas Stadions (grass pitch) and the U15’s will play at the smaller Arkādijas Stadions next to Rīgas Futbola Skola. Here are the dates for the games:
