This past week marked the season’s end in both Denmark and the Netherlands, and with it the end of an era with PSV. While both Brøndby and PSV will be in the 2021-22 UEFA Women’s Championship League, PSV will do it without Ceci Santiago. Rumor has her going to a Liga MX Femenil team, but nothing solid has emerged on her future. Meanwhile Spain saw one team secure a place in the UWCL, one secure a place in the Liga Iberdrola next season, and another secure a place in the Segunda División in 2021-22 as they enter into the penultimate week of competition. Sweden and the United States however will continue to play through the summer.
Daniella Diaz was an unused substitute as Brøndby lost 3-1 to Køge in the final match of the season. While Køge won the Elitedivisionen as a result of the match, both teams advanced to the UEFA Women’s Championship League (UWCL) next season. Køge will skip to the second round, while Brøndby will be in the first round of play. The Round 1 draw will be held on July 2nd.

Anika Rodriguez was subbed on at halftime as PSV won the KNVB Beker Cup 1-0 against ADO Den Haag. Ceci Santiago was an unused substitute in the match, and after the match, PSV’s Spanish-language Twitter account thanked her for her contributions and wished her success in the future.
¡Gracias @ceciSantiago18! 🧤🇲🇽
Te deseamos el mejor de los éxitos en lo que venga dentro de tu trayectoria futbolística ❤️
