CAF Women Football Organising Committee Meeting Today To Decide Ghana’s Fate As AWCON Host

The Confederation of African Football Women's football organising committee will meet today to decide whether to strip Ghana of the hosting rights of the 2018 African Women's Nations Cup or not.

Defending champions, Nigeria, 2016 hosts and runners-up, Cameroun, 2012 champions, Equatorial Guinea, Algeria, South Africa, Zambia and Mali have all qualified for the tournament, and will by the hosts for the two-week competition which will also serve as the 2019 Women's World Cup qualifier.

The top three teams of the AWCON 2018, will qualify to represent the continent at the WWC to be staged in France.
