National Women's League to start next season - Nyantakyi

The President of the Ghana Football Association Kwasi Nyantakyi has reiterated the Association’s commitment to developing women’s football and confirmed plans of staging the first ever women’s league in the country.

The GFA Chief says the Association will be introducing the National league for women from 2013, an improvement of the zonal championship it has been organizing for the past few years.

“For the third time running, we have organized zonal women’s football championships and this has been organized at considerable cost to the FA. We are very committed to the development of women’s football and will therefore like to move our commitment a much higher by introducing the National League for women effective next season,” Nyantakyi said.

“The National League will be made up of twelve clubs and the inaugural league will therefore start with four teams from the three zones of the country,” he further revealed.

Clubs from Northern, Upper East, Upper West and Brong Ahafo Regions will make up Zone One; Ashanti, Eastern and Western Regions will constitute Zone Two whilst Zone Three will have Greater Accra, Central and Volta Regions.
