The Zambian Football Association's president, Andrew Kamanga says he wants to extend women's football to all provinces in the country.
The FAZ boss has hinted on finalising talks with the women’s football league sponsors, urging them to come on board.
Kamanga was reacting after demands from the fans for an explanation over the U17 Women's team crashing out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

The failure to qualify for the global tournament comes after FAZ's negligence in organising women's football in the country.
“As much as we appreciate women’s league being active in Lusaka and Copperbelt provinces, there’s also need to extend it to other provinces,” said the FAZ boss.
Reports reveal that the FAZ Women’s League, which covers only two provinces, Copperbelt and Lusaka, is currently run without sponsors and winning prize money.
The FAZ boss has assured stakeholders of a strong and competitive Women’s league and further emphasized the need of training women coaches and enhancing technical departments of their teams.
