Board Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede (XIV), has revealed that the a women’s football team will be introduced soon.
The women’s team will be named Oaks FC and this forms part of CAF and FIFA requirements that all clubs must have female teams.
Togbe Afede, who is also the majority shareholder of the club speaking at the press conference hinted that necessary steps have been completed to successfully launch their female team in the coming weeks.
“We have finished negotiations to acquire a football team in the Women’s division.” Togbe Afede shared as reported by Citi Sports.
“This means that in a matter of weeks, we can announce a female side for Hearts of Oak, the Oaks FC.
“That is also a requirement of CAF,” he added.
Hearts of Oak are hoping to bounce on back on a good note after starting the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League season on a poor note.
Serbian gaffer, Slavko Matic has been named as the new trainer for the side following Samuel Boadu’s departure after 18 months in charge.
