A national women's football league in Ghana was first played in 2012–13. Regional and zonal leagues existed long ago.

History[edit]

Up to 2006 only some regional areas had active women's football leagues. In 2006 a zonal league was created, that played out a national champion for the first time. Ghana was divided into three zones that played a league stage. Each zone then advanced two teams to a national stage.[1]

The current format was first played in 2012–13. The league is played in two divisions, after the league stage, both division winners meet in a championship final. The first final was won by Hasaacas Ladies 2–1 over Fabulous Ladies at the Accra Sports Stadium.[2] A large part of football equipment was sponsored by FIFA.[3]
