"The Queens have over and again proved their capabilities and I strongly believe it is just about time they got the necessary mechanisms to maximize their potentials".

The Chairman believes the time has come for stakeholders to market the women's game in order to "strengthen our aim of building a solid team that will be an envy of all", he added.

Mr Denkabe told the GNA Sports that his outfit would soon embark on national sensitisation of the game in their quest to sell the idea and seek the support of more stakeholders to make the programme succeed.
