Harare City Football Club has introduced a women soccer team with former mighty warriors gaffer Rosemary Mugadza being appointed head coach, 263Chat can reveal.
In an interview with 263Chat, Mugadza confirmed that she had been appointed to lead the Harare City Women’s team adding that they will be competing in the northern region.
“I have gathered a mixture of players both experienced and inexperienced, others last played football three years ago because of lack of opportunities as there are few women football clubs in the country.
This is our maiden season but we still hope to do better and possibly excel in our second season,” said Mugadza.
She called on football fans to support Harare City women’s team.
Mugadza bemoaned lack of corporate sponsorship for women football as well as limited publicity which she said is affecting the growth and development of the game but she believes given time, she will be the first coach to take represent the country at the Confederation of African Football tournament.
“I am aiming to be the first coach to be leading the first club to be playing in the Confederations of African Federation (C.A.F) cup which was introduced this year and with the good team that we are building we will achieve what we want.
“With this project we are going to be working with all city council primary schools so that we have the junior academy and it will have a better future team.”
