The National Women’s League Board says it is hoping that the level of seriousness and commitment exhibited by all the twelve teams in the just ended maiden national women’s league would encourage corporate Ghana to come to the aid of women football.
The main challenge that the competition faced was with funds, according to member of the board, Leannier Addy.
The Ghana Football Association funded the entire competition, a situation which should not have been so if there was sponsorship.
Leannier Addy is hoping for a change in situation in the next edition of the women’s league.
She told JOY Sports in an interview “for now, the structures have been laid. We just need to follow them and ensure we improve and sustain the women’s league. Our biggest constraint was with financing, but the FA came to our aid. We are hoping that corporate Ghana would be attracted to the zeal, hard work and determination exhibited by all the twelve participating teams.”
