Banda becomes second most expensive female footballer


By Robert Mwanza

The National Women’s Soccer League’s Orlando Pride has signed Copper Queens captain and forward BARBARA BANDA from Chinese Super League team Shanghai Shengli for a 740,000 dollars transfer fee.

ESPN Sports reports that the fee is the second highest in world football history behind Zambian teammate RACHEAL KUNDANANJI, whose move to National women football league expansion team Bay FC set the global record last month.

BANDA’s contract with the Pride is a four-year deal valued at around 2 point 1 million dollars all-in, including bonuses, which will make her one of the highest-paid players in the National women football league.

Shanghai will also maintain a sell-on clause to receive a percentage of the fee should BANDA, 23, be transferred elsewhere in the future.
