The 2018 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, which will be hosted in Ghana later this year, will officially be launched on Friday March 23, 2018, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has announced.

The launch will be held at the Swiss Spirit Alisa hotel in Accra and is expected to be attended by some key CAF Officials, as well as members of the LOC and government officials.

Freda Akosua Prempeh who is the Chairperson of the LOC, says preparations towards the tournament are on course, and believes Ghana will stage an outstanding tournament come November.

“Due to the preparation involved ahead of this year’s Women’s AFCON, I am very sure that we will give Ghana and the rest of Africa the most memorable women’s tournament ever,” she assured.

She added that the success of the tournament will aid in raising awareness for women’s football in the country.

“The biggest challenge for women’s football in Ghana is sponsorship. If our girls are well resourced and supported like our men, they will win trophies for the country.”

The tournament is scheduled to take place from November to December 2018 with the Accra and Cape Coast Sports Stadiums set to host the games.
