Sudan Launches First-ever Women’s Football League

first_imgSudan’s first ever women’s club football league kicked off Monday, with two teams clashing at a Khartoum stadium as crowds of fans and diplomats cheered.The championship, which involves 21 clubs, would have seemed unlikely just months ago when long time Islamist ruler Omar al-Bashir was in power.The first club match was played between Tahadi and Difaain in the capital on Monday. Matches are also scheduled for Madani, Al-Obeid and Kadugli.“Civilian rule, Civilian rule,” chanted the crowd as the first match between the two teams began.Crowds clapped and whistled, with many also chanting “Kandaka, Kandaka,” referring to ancient Nubian queens.The match was attended by Sudan’s new Minister of Sport Wala Essam and some Sudanese and foreign diplomats.“This is a historical game not only for women’s sport but for Sudan,” Essam told reporters.“We will give special attention to women’s sport and women’s football.”The start of the women’s club football league comes amid expectations that the current three-year transition period will see liberal policies implemented across the country, including measures to promote freedom of speech, women’s rights, sport and arts.Sudan joined FIFA in 1948. In 1957, Sudan co-founded the Confederation of African Football with Egypt, Ethiopia and South Africa at a meeting in Khartoum.But women’s football has faced an uphill fight since the country adopted Islamic sharia law in 1983, six years before Bashir seized power in an Islamist-backed coup.Bashir was ousted by the army in a palace coup on April 11 on the back of nationwide protests against his iron-fisted rule.A new joint civilian-military ruling body, called the sovereign council, is governing of the country for a transition period of 39 months.The 11-member council has six civilians including two women.RelatedWorld Cup Record-Breaker El-Hadary Joins IsmailyJuly 3, 2018In “Africa”NPFL Super Six: LMC Bans Rabiu Ali, Drops Heavy Fine on Kano PillarsJune 12, 2019In “NPFl”NFF Reveals Breakdown Of $2,000,000 Covid-19 Relief Funds For Leagues, Clubs And National TeamsAugust 11, 2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Leeds continue their interest in Brazilian defender – Club looking for…

first_imgFinally returning to the Premier League after a 16 year wait, Leeds United are set to have a busy summer. They haven’t made a big splash yet, but judging by some of the rumours circulating, notably those involving Valencia’s Rodrigo, that could change very quickly.While Marcelo Bielsa has made it clear he wants to bolster his attack for next season, there’s also the defence to look at.One of the recurring names, at least from the Italian press, is that of Torino’s Lyanco, whom Leeds are reportedly keen on.Gazzetta dello Sport explain as much on Tuesday, naming Bielsa’s side alongside the likes PSV Eindhoven and Bologna for the 23-year-old.Sporting CP were also on the case, but their first offer was turned down, which is where Tuttosport come in with some details.They don’t mention Leeds, but they do give us a clearer picture of where things stand.The newspaper reveals Sporting’s offer of €6m + 50% of the next transfer wasn’t good enough, with Urbano Cairo wanting ‘at least €12m + €3m in bonuses’.So that’s what Leeds need to put on the table if they want anything to do with the Brazilian next season.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
