The Most Powerful Women In Football

The wife of former Ghanaian international Michael Essien recently bought Italian side Como making her one of the first female football club owners, but who are football’s most powerful women? Let’s take a look!

Akosua Puni Essien reportedly purchased the Italian lakeside club on auction for £206,000 (R35 million), and she will be hoping to bring her new team back to Sere A after years of financial difficulties.

Mrs Essien joins a growing list of women entering into the football field, with one of the most powerful and influential females in the game already sitting on the FIFA board.

Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura is FIFA’s secretary general, and her inclusion at FIFA was groundbreaking – the 54-year-old became the first woman, and first non-European to hold an executive position at soccer’s governing body.
