The Member of Parliament for Gomoa Central, Rachel Nana Adwoa Appoh has rallied support for women’s soccer by urging corporate organizations to sponsor the National women’s football league as part of their corporate social responsibilities.

According to her, sustaining the women’s football league will not only serve as a ground for selecting players into the various national teams, but also create an avenue for women to discover their talents and subsequently realize their dreams as professional footballers.

She has further entreated the team management committee members of the various women national teams to identify talented players for future national assignments for Ghana.

In a press release on the just ended Ghana National Women’s Football League, the Hon. Rachel Appoh who is also a member of the parliamentary, select committee on youth and sports commended the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for putting up this competition for the women in the football fraternity.

She noted that the sustenance of the league and subsequent creation of divisions in the near future will also grant a platform for entrepreneurs to enter into partnership with the government agencies and other identifiable organization for business.

The youthful MP appealed to the team owners to name their clubs such that a common person on the street could identify him or herself with the team for a massive supporting base.

While commending all the teams that competed in the league for their participation, she singled out Hasaacas Ladies for praise for winning the maiden edition of the tournament.
