Popular Television broadcaster, Bridget Otoo on Wednesday commenced a campaign to raise GH¢1 Million for Ghana Women’s Premier League club Hasaacas Ladies.
The Metro TV news anchor who hails from Sekondi, the city where the club was founded, commenced the campaign on Wednesday and is seeking 50,000 people to help make players of Hasaacas Ladies FC proud by donating something in the region of GH¢20 (twenty thousand Ghana Cedis) each.
A staunch supporter of the Ghana women champions, Ms. Otoo already donated GH¢10,000 to Hasaacas Ladies following their success in the West Africa qualifying tournament in Ivory Coast earlier.
“Please support this campaign to raise 1,000,000 cedis to for the women who play for @HasaacasLadies They are Premier league and FA Cup Champions, but sadly earn little & in fact do not get the recognition they deserve. Together let’s honour them. This money goes to only players,” she posted on Twitter.
She’s known to be a big fan of the Sekondi Hasaacas FC brand.
Hasaacas Ladies in the year 2021 won three trophies; the Women’s Premier League, the Women’s FA Cup and the WAFU Zone B Women’s Champions League Qualifiers.
The Hasmal Ladies narrowly missed out on the CAF Women’s Champions League, with silver medal, losing the final to South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies.
