Les Princesses du Burkina Football Club

The players from Burkina Faso live up to their name: as "princesses" of the Sahel region they have been pioneers in all women's football since 1998, even across geographic borders.

With the political support of Marguerite Karama these women from Ouagadougou have taken initiative and organized several 5-nation friendly tournaments, earning them the reputation as an engaged and powerful team. Their motto " “savoir lutter & pouvoir gagner” (English: "to know how to fight and be able to win") refers to the fact that success in sports also had, and still has, to do with the fight for more space to play.
