Nigeria To Host WAFU B Women’s Champions League


Nigeria looks set to host the 2023 edition of the WAFU Women’s Champions League.

With Delta Queens being the newly crowned champions of the Nigerian Women Football League, the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba might host to the West African sub-region women’s inter-club qualifiers.

A report by the Ghana Football Assocation informed of the development, after the GFA claimed that it has duly submitted the country’s representative for the next WAFU Women’s Champions League.

This follows a firm notification from the sub continental football governing body, WAFU B, on the submission of the name of the representing club for the third edition of the tournament.

Techiman-based Ampem Darkoa Ladies FC got the nod to participate in the regional tournament for a second successive year after emerging winners of the 2022-23 Ghana Women’s Premier League.

The Nana Mma saw off Hasaacas Ladies in this season’s final to clinch the title despite a topsy-turvy campaign.

Ampem Darkoaa were crowned champions of Ghana for the second time in a row after winning the playoff final after post-match penalty shootouts at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.

Ampem Darkoa will be looking to make an impact this time after losing out on the main CAF Women’s Champions League final in Morocco last year.

The team suffered a 3:0 defeat to Nigerian side, Bayelsa Queens in the WAFU B qualifier in Ivory Coast.
