Vice-chairperson of the Women’s League Board, organizers of the National Women’s League, Rosalind Amoh has told Herosportsgh.com, they expect much improvement in this year’s league.
The season 6 of the National Women’s League is expected to kick off on the weekend of April 7 and 8 across match venues, with the launch pegged at Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at the GFA Secretariat.
The National Women’s league which started in 2012 with 5 clubs in each zone keeps growing although yet to attract title sponsors. Nevertheless, clubs have internally motivating factors that keep them alive, as each is fights for laurels and bragging rights, with the coming season predicted to be very competitive.
Rosalind, a practising journalist, believes the competition will improve, as players would seek to impress the various national team coaches.
“Well, I think that nothing will change much, we will only seek to improve upon what we did during the previous season: making sure that we play on better pitches; we have referees who are competent and capable, and then the clubs themselves are ready to ensure that they give off their best; it is a very busy year for women’s football, so they would have to live up to expectation; the players themselves would want to catch the eyes of the various national team coaches but basically we only trying to further promote the game. As for sponsorship, we have no control over it, we are still looking for it if we get it fine, but as I speak with you now, the FA hasn’t confirmed whether there will be or not.”
Ampem Darkoa Ladies are now two-time winners of the league, after beating Lady strikes 1-0 in the playoff last year at Kumasi. Hasaacas are the other winners of the previous editions, winning it for a record of 3 times consecutively.
