Rachel Kundananji becomes the world’s most expensive female footballer of all-time

In a groundbreaking achievement for African football, Rachel Kundananji, the dynamic forward for the Zambia women’s team has completed a move to USA club Bay FC from Spanish club Madrid CFF. According to Forbes, Kundananji’s $787,800 transfer fee makes her the world’s most expensive female footballer of all-time.


Adding to her stellar achievements, Kundananji contributed to Zambia’s national team, affectionately known as the Shipolopolos, securing qualification for the Women’s World Cup for the first time in history. Her remarkable journey culminated with her scoring the team’s inaugural goal in the prestigious tournament.

Rachel Kundananji was crowned the winner of this year’s prestigious GOAL50 award in the women’s category. Kundananji’s outstanding performance outshone formidable contenders including Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala, Colombia’s Linda Caicedo, Malawi’s Tabitha Chawinga, and England’s Lauren James.

The GOAL50 award reflects not only Kundananji’s individual brilliance but also her instrumental role in elevating the status of African women’s football on the global stage. As the first African to clinch this honor, Kundananji’s triumph is a source of inspiration for aspiring female footballers across the continent.

The Copper Queens striker will team up with Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala who also joined the club from Spanish giants Barcelona.
