Kumba Girls League
Women’s soccer is on the rise – world wide – and Cameroon is no exception. In 2012, the Cameroon Women’s National Team qualified for the London Olympics for the first time in their history and most recently their success in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada has the entire nation buzzing with excitement. Now more than ever, girls across the country are getting the opportunity to enjoying the game just like the boys.
In 2014, we launched our first-ever girls tournament which involved four teams in Kumba. The excitement around this event encouraged us to continue with an International Women’s Day tournament in March 2015 and a summer holiday All-Star Selection Cup in August 2015.
The Ministry of Sports and Physical Education requested CameroonFDP create a team from Kumba to represent Meme Division in a regional competition in Limbe in December 2015.
After selecting the 23 young women who will represent their community, we are now working closely with them to see how we can support them on and off the field.
