National Women's League (Ghana)
|Current champions||Hasaacas Ladies |
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.
