FA’s should invest a lot more in Women Football – Musonye
The Secretary General of the Council of East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA), Nicholas Musonye has advised Federations in the region to invest a lot more in women football.
Musonye said after the climax of the CECAFA Senior Women’s Challenge Cup in Tanzania on Monday that the region has a lot of potential in women’s football.
“Our quick short cut to qualify for the World Cup could be through women’s football. But all this calls for more investing in women’s football,” said Musonye.
He said the game of football among the women in the region is growing at a very fast rate and yet not a lot of resources is injected. “I call upon Federations to give women’s football a lot of attention because we have the chance to make it to World Cup and Olympics,” he added.
Musonye also cautioned Federations to focus on developing manpower among the women like having women coaches and doctors to deal with women football.
“I am glad that Djibouti, South Sudan and Sudan have also started to develop women football. These are very positive strides,” added Musonye.
After the successful CECAFA Senior Women’s Challenge Cup won by Kenya, attention will now shift to the CECAFA U-17 Women’s Challenge Cup slated for December 9-18th in Uganda.
