GFA Secures UEFA Assist’s ‘Football For Women Programme’ For WPL Clubs

The Ghana Football Association, through its development partnership with the UEFA Assist, has secured, the Football for Women programme for the Twenty Women’s Premier League clubs ahead of the new season.

The Football for Women Programme is under the Capacity Building Pillar of UEFA Assist.

The programme will take place in Ghana from 6th to 10th December this year.

The UEFA Assist Football for Women programme consists of a comprehensive range of workshops that showcase how to implement effective governance structures to grow Women’s football and increase awareness and participation. The workshops also demonstrate how to successfully professionalise, commercialise, promote and market women’s football and women in football.

The Ghana Football Association is pursuing a policy of building a strong foundation for the development of women football across the country.

The Association believes that the Women for Football programme will provide the Women Premier League clubs the requisite skillset and knowledge to develop the elite women clubs.

Capacity Building remains one of the six Strategic Pillars of the GFA and a key development agenda to promote football in the country.

The Women’s Premier League is made up of 10 clubs from the Northern Zone (from Ashanti Region upwards) and another 10 clubs in the Southern part of the country.
