A league for women is the ultimate key step in the right direction for Ghana and that is what Ghana Football Association has been doing. Women’s football has been gaining ground in Africa especially Ghana and it has been amazing, a platform where girls can express themselves and be who they are. Organizing a professional women’s league is not an easy task and management of Berry Ladies Football Club commends and applaud the steps Ghana Football Association has been taking or taken so far.
Collaboration has always been part of development and sustainability and GFA’s initiatives towards Ghana Women’s Premier League is a great opportunity to organize women’s football nationwide and to bring hope to those who have always had passion for this beautiful game. Before you ask the question, “What’s Next for GFA?” Let’s go through some highlights of initiatives taken by Ghana Football Association (GFA) to grow Women’s Football in Ghana.
As part of GFA developmental plans, they are keen to attract girls to play the beautiful game.
GFA’s gender empowerment programmes in collaboration with sponsors and partners will help foster the women’s league.
The GFA has made huge strides in creating opportunities for women and girls to play – a figure which has risen so much and raised so many hopes among women and girls; But there is still massive growth potential that the private sectors in Ghana can take advantage of – The involvement of females in football also extends beyond playing. GFA wants to increase the number of female coaches, referees and administrators.
Underpinning all GFA initiatives are some other key messages – Football is fun, it improves self-esteem, creates new friendships – and like all sport, it plays a key role in combating obesity, particularly in teenagers. Ayeeko! to GFA and to answer the earlier question of what’s next for GFA? all we can say is we know there will be more initiatives and Berry Ladies Football Club will be here to witness them all.
Cheers to more, a step in the right direction.
