Speaking at the handing over ceremony of the equipment to the National Women Football Committee (NWFC) on Tuesday, Mohoanyane said last year, the LeFA National Executive Committee instructed the association’s Technical Director to go around the country to find out why there is no growth in women football teams.
“The office discovered that women teams lack equipment. The NEC then decided to provide the teams with kits so that they could train and play under improved conditions. The equipment comprises bibs, balls and nets among other things,” he said.
Mohoanyane showed that the 81 teams do not include the 10 Women Super League clubs which received a COVID-19 Relief fund worth M250 000 with each team pocketing M25 000.
The NEC, he said will consider assisting these developmental teams whenever the need arises but emphasized that they will not be provided with similar equipment every year.
President of NWFC Baholo Motene thanked LeFA for the assistance, saying women football is still developing in Lesotho, hence the evidently low performance.
“The lack of equipment that the Technical Director witnessed amongst female teams throughout the district was also noticed by our office.
