FAZ calls for promotion of women football in rural areas

Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) in Northwestern is encouraging more women to participate in female football in the province. Northwestern FAZ provincial coordinator Arthur Kamuloso has observed that it is unfortunate that most women in the province shun from participating in women football.

ZANIS sports reports Kamuloso saying in an interview that women in the province however need to identify their talent in football so that it can be nurtured.

“There is need to identify women ‘s talent in football so that it can be nurtured thereby, thereby make them to become professional footballers and later earn a living out of it, “ he said.

He said the association is on an identification process through the women’s football league which is set to kick off on November 10 this year.

Kamuloso therefore, called on women to turn up in numbers to support their fellow women and appreciate the sport.

Meanwhile, the Northwestern FAZ provincial coordinator has appealed to well-wishers to offer sponsorship like they do for male football teams in preparation of the football tournament.
