Seven clubs from the Northern Region have been accepted and will play outstanding fixtures since the Zimbabwe Women’s Football League commenced on the 6th of May beginning this weekend.
Women’s football returned this year after a four year timeout with what was supposed to be a united national league bankrolled by ZIFA, although teams had been hand-picked from across the country.
The introduction of a National Women’s League is a far cry from what a national league should look like without the big teams such as Black Rhinos Queens who contributed players to national women’s team, the Mighty Warriors.
ZIFA President, Phillip Chiyangwa met the commanders of the women’s uniformed forces and team owners and brokered a deal to end the impasse that threatened to continue dividing the teams in the different leagues.
Seven of the eight clubs from the Northern Region have been accepted and will play outstanding fixtures since the Zimbabwe Women’s Football League commenced on the 6th of May.
According to a letter to clubs from Rosemary Kanonge and copied to ZIFA and board members, the clubs are now expected to pay the outstanding affiliation fees of US$400 per club and another US$100 commitment fee by 2 June to the Zimbabwe Women Football FBC account.
