AWCON 2018: Ghana Remains Hosts, Says CAF


Ghana will host the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations billed for November 17- December.

Speculations were rife about the country still hosting the tournament, after Ghana was threatened by FIFA with a suspension. But Confederation of Africa Football said in a statement on Tuesday night that Ghana was never stripped of the opportunity.

The reports further indicated Kenya had also reject an opportunity to host the competition after receiving the nod from CAF to host.

CAF also indicated a final decision would be taken after CAF’s general meeting on September 12.

Back in July there were fears that Ghana may not be ready to host, as there was no indication that the country was preparing for the event. However, Ghana sports minister Isaac Asiamah assured CAF president Ahmad Ahmad, Ghana will be ready.
