Ghana has been handed the rights to host the 2019 Africa Women’s Afcon following intense lobbying by leading member of the CAF Executive Committee, Kwesi Nyantakyi.The decision was reached and announced after the Confederation’s ExCo meeting on Tuesday, 27th September 2016.
Ghana has been keen on hosting a continental CAF competition to improve their stadium facilities and the period looks set for 2018.
Ghana’s quest to host the 2017 Afcon fell through as the hosting rights were given to Gabon but the relentless efforts of the GFA Boss and support from the Ghana government has made it successful.
This is one of the several beneficial projects the Ghana FA Boss has succeeded in lobbying for the state since becoming a C
AF ExCo member.
This will go into history as the first international tournament to be hosted in the country after the 2008 Africa Nations Cup which was successfully hosted.
The eight-team tournament is therefore likely to be hosted in any of the national stadia and will see a massive facilities for the Kumasi, Accra and Essipong stadia if the women’s elite competition is hosted at any of these venues as the Tamale stadium is already in good shape.
