SUPER division side Napsa Stars Football Club have launched a women’s team to be called ‘Napsa Stars Queens ‘ which will be participating in the FAZ Provincial Women’s League.
Napsa General Secretary Honor Janza unveiled the team yesterday and said it will be coached by Enala Phiri, and will be participating in the FAZ Lusaka Provincial Women’s League.
Janza noted that the club will make sure that the team upholds the corporate image of their sponsor, the National Pensions Scheme Authority (NAPSA) just like the men’s team had done and that they were looking forward to contribute players to the national team.
He noted that the development had come in line with club licensing requirements, and the club’s effort in supporting FAZ in developing women’s football in the country.
“We have been assembling this team since September, and we are excited to officially let the football fraternity know about it. We have a capable technical bench and we are confident that they will compete favourably and bring glory to the club,” Janza said.
And FAZ deputy General Secretary Joseph Chimpampwe who was present at the event, expressed happiness saying the development had come at the right time especially after launching the women’s super league for the first time.
Chimpampwe also urged the team to uphold professionalism and be their own brand.
Team head coach Phiri said she was happy to be part of Napsa Stars Queens and promised to do her best in bringing positive results.
Present at the event were FAZ women’s representative Janet Bwalya and FAZ Technical Director Lyson Zulu.
