Monday 4th December , 2017 12:01 pm

An inspection team from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Sunday visited some facilities in Cape Coast to determine their readiness for the 2018 Women’s African Cup of Nations which will be hosted in Ghana.

The tournament will run from November 17 to December 1 and the Local Organising Committee has picked out Accra and Cape Coast as the venues for the competition.


On Sunday, the team went to the Cape Coast Stadium, which will host matches during the tournament. They had a look at the turf, dressing rooms and other parts of the facility.

The team from CAF also went to the Robert Mensah and Ndoum Stadia to see their state.  In addition, they had a look at the Glow Lamp Soccer Academy owned by Nii Odartey Lamptey, former Black Stars midfielder.

The Robert Mensah and Ndoum Stadia and the Glow Lamp Soccer Academy are being noted as potential training venues.


CAF’s Inspection Team is expected to visit the Accra Sports Stadium and other facilities in the capital during the week after which a response will be given to the Local Organising Committee (LOC) on the positives and negatives of the various facilities.

The feedback is supposed to help Ghana put things in better shape ahead of the tournament in 2018.
