Hasaacas Ladies launch campaign to raise funds for WAFU Women’s Champions League qualifiers
Hasaacas Ladies have launched a campaign on Twitter to seek financial assistance for the club ahead of the WAFU Women’s Champions League qualifiers.
Hasaacas Ladies will be making a trip to Cote D’Ivoire for the maiden edition of the WAFU Women’s Champions League which serves as qualifiers for the CAF Women’s Champions League.
The team after winning both trophies (Women’s Premier League and Women’s FA Cup) in the local scene has set sights on conquering Africa and that has its own financial demands which will require certain amount of financial assistance.
The desire to bring positive change to how people perceive women’s football largely depends on Hasaacas’s campaign that will possibly trickle down to the other 16 Women’s Premier League sides and across the country making sure women’s football is as strong as ever.
The team is currently putting in the finishing touches to their preparation before leaving the country(as it stands by road) to the Ivorian capital, Abidjan.
The traveling arrangements which presents its own challenges is as a result of the financial burden the club faces according to the Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Evelyn Nsiah Asare.
On her Twitter feed, she’s made the state of the club now clear; the club deserves some financial support from key stakeholders. She quizzed that just as it’s being done for men’s teams when traveling to represent the country, same should be done for the women’s team.
“Just as we do for the men’s teams when embarking on such events. Let’s do same for these girls because they both carry the same aim … to make a recognition for Ghana 🇬🇭 when it comes to African Soccer”.
“Motivate these girls to do more more for Women’s Soccer and Ghana at large. They’re the best in Ghana’s Women’s football.”
“Undoubtedly the Best Women’s Soccer team in Ghana, Defending Champions,5 times Premier League champions, 20/21 premier League and FA cup Champions. Hasaacas Ladies doesn’t deserve to be sidelined,they need to be protected. Pride of Women’s Football in Ghana.”
Hasaacas Ladies are in group B of the draw alongside top seeded Nigerian side, Rivers Angels FC and Niger’s AS Police de Niamey.
The tournament begins on July 17, 2021 and will see Hasaacas Ladies play Rivers Angels FC before the last group game with AS Police de Niamey.
The two finalists automatically book slots to the Championship proper to be held in Egypt later this year.
