The launch last weekend of the Absa Women's League to cater for female footballers and the coronation of Noko Matlou as the best woman footballer in Africa bodes well for the future of the women's game.

The launch last weekend of the Absa Women's League to cater for female footballers and the coronation of Noko Matlou as the best woman footballer in Africa bodes well for the future of the women's game.

Matlou and her Banyana Banyana teammates made it to the finals of the last edition of the African Women's championship despite a lack of a proper league for female footballers.

Now that the players and the sponsors have come on board, it is up to the national football association to demonstrate that they do not regard women's football as another politically correct burden they have to carry but rather as an outlet for young women to continue showing off their talents.
