COSAFA: R1 Million ($84K) Boost for 2017 Women’s Championships

Can The Zimbabwe women's national team top South Africa in the COSAFA Cup?

On Wednesday, Kwese sports handed over a prize money worth R1 Million ($ USD 84 000) to the 2017 COSAFA Women’s Championships, putting the competition on the same pedestal with that of the men’s competition.

This is definitely a positive step in the right direction for uplifting the women’s game in Southern Africa which is becoming even more popular. Hopefully, signals like these will act as calls to action for football bodies and other stakeholders informing them that the women’s game is worth investing in. South Africa are the defending champions of the region after beating Zimbabwe by two goals to one in last year’s finals.
