The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has named Liberian First Lady Clar Weah as their ambassador for women's football, making the announcement at the first symposium for African women's football in Morocco that was attended by Bermuda Football Association’s 2nd Vice President Crenstant Williams and Bermuda Football Association’s Women’s Committee Chair Charryse Bean.
Speaking during the closing ceremony in Marrakech, CAF President Ahmad Ahmad announced that Weah, wife of Liberia president George Weah, will have the task of promoting women's football around the globe.
Weah, whose husband was the World Footballer of the Year in 1995, told KweséESPN: "This is unbelievable. I have attended this symposium for two days and now I am to champion the Women's Football cause out there.
Also the Confederation of African Football (Caf) President, Ahmad, has promised a "complete analysis" of the proposals discussed during the first ever women's football symposium.
Ahmad said he hoped to "break all the taboos to help promote the women's game in Africa."
"What you have discussed during these days, what you have proposed, what you have retained in the title of resolutions, will be the subject of a complete analysis by the new department of women's football which has just been created," said Ahmad.
"My great final wish is that women's football on our continent becomes a tool at the service of economic, social and cultural life," Ahmad added.
