In a move to empower the girl child and Develop Women Football in Africa, CAF has made it a mandatory for all male clubs to have a female team before they can not participate in CAF Competitions.
CAF will only allow Teams that have female club teams to take part in CAF Champions League from 2022/23 season, which is next season according to CAF club licensing senior manager, Muhammad Sidat.
Muhammed Sidat revealed this during the Club Licensing support mission in Liberia.
During his campaign and immediately after his victory, Caf president Patrice Motsepe vowed to change the complexion of women football during his tenure of office.
“We want women’s football, in the period of my presidency, to be significantly growing, progressing and prospering. Someone was saying to me, we could actually have an African nation winning the Fifa Women’s World Cup before we have a male team doing so,” the former Mamelodi Sundowns president was quoted saying.
