Northern ladies FC striker, Anatu Sadat becomes the first player to wear the “Yaatuiba” in the 2020/2021 Women’s Premier League.
The former Right to Dream and Nimoobi Ladies FC player was spotted covered-up in a Nike branded “Yaatuiba” when her side took on Ampem Darkoa Ladies in Techiman on Match day 7.
She is the first player to benefit from the “ Maxwell Woledzi project” aimed at providing such apparels to Muslim girls in Ghana who are into football and willing to honor their faith along side.
Though Anatu Sadat is the first beneficiary, Muslim players in Northern Ladies willing to wear the “Yaatuiba” will be used as models before extending it to all Muslim players in the Women’s League.
The package includes a sports bra, boots, and long stretch coverings for the legs and this initiative comes as a relief to Muslim girls willing to play active football but are restricted due challenges of exposure.
Maxwell Woledzi is a former Right to Dreams defender now with FC Nordsjælland. He started this free distribution project last year using girls in Nima as models before extending it to his former mate, Anatu Sadat.
