CAF determined to develop Women’s football – Bah

The Acting Secretary General of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Abdel Bah has said they are determined to develop women’s football in the continent.

Speaking in an interview on Monday Bah who is too over earlier this month after the surprise resignation of Mouad Hajji said CAF is planning lots of things that also includes women’s football.

“Development of women’s football is one of our top priority,” said Bah who added that they are currently working on plans for a CAF Women’s Champions League.

He said that it is good that many nations are now taking up women’s football seriously. “We have about 30 nations with serious women’s football,” he added.

About the Women’s Nations Cup, Bah said they have received proposals from Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea. “CAF has asked for additional documents from these two member associations, which we are still awaiting today,” he added.

Congo pulled out as the original hosts of the Women’s Nations Cup.
