Speaking to Accra FM on the progress of preparation, Mr. Divine Edem Dotse who is the team manager for Elwak Wings has expressed optimism in the chances of the side enjoying success to ensure they make the nation proud.

“The preparations for the tournament in Burkina Faso have been good so far. We will bring both trophies [for male and female] back home. We have the quality in our team and we will win all the trophies,” he shared while speaking to Jacob Kwabla Aborvor.
