CAF strips Ghana of 2018 AWCON hosting rights over poor preparation
With just three months left for the start of the 2018 African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON), Ghana has been stripped of the hosting rights.
The eight-team tournament is scheduled to take place between 17 November to 1 December 2018.
According to the CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad, Ghana’s ill preparedness was a major reason for the decision.
Ahmad was quoted on Kwese ESPN that they are looking for new hosts of the competition.
“We are engaging several countries and should be able to announce a host during the CAF Extraordinary General Assembly in Egypt next month,” Ahmad told KweséESPN.
Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Algeria, South Africa, Zambia, Mali and Nigeria have already qualified for the tournament.
