National Women's League (Ghana)
|Current champions||Hasaacas Ladies |
The National Women's League (NWL) is the top division league for women's football in Ghana. It was first launched in 2012.
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.
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. A large part of football equipment was sponsored by FIFA.
