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 the seventeenth of November to the first of December 2018.
The CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad, said Ghana’s ill preparedness was a major reason for the decision. Ahmad added that CAF is now looking for new hosts of the competition, adding that they should be able to announce a host during the CAF Extraordinary General Assembly in Egypt next month.
Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Algeria, South Africa, Zambia, Mali and Nigeria have already qualified for the tournament.
