President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Dr. Ahmad Ahmad, is expected to arrive in the country by close of this week for the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations draw which comes off on Sunday October 21, 2018 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel.
CAF’s Inspection team, led by the Deputy General-Secretary of Football and development, Anthony Baffoe, yesterday inspected the facilities in Cape Coast which will be used during the tournament.
The team first visited the Cape Coast Sports Stadium and then later moved to the Robert Mensah Sports Stadium and the Nduom Sports Stadium which will be used as training venues for the tournament.
Information gathered by The Finder indicates that the teams to base at Cape Coast will lodge at the Ridge Royal Hotel, the Coconut Groove Hotel, Pimpamsi Hotel and the Bejaya Beach Hotel.
The Inspection team will today inspect the facilities in Accra, where they will visit the Accra Sports Stadium, the El Wak Sports Stadium and the Presec Legon pitch.
