A contingent of 21 players, the technical team and management committee members will depart on board Emirates flight for the tournament which will begin on Friday September 30.

Coach Evans Adotey and his team have been in camp for some time now at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram before moving to Cape Coast over the past weeks to continue their preparation.

The Black Maidens will face Japan in the opening Group D match at the Prince Mohammed International Stadium in Al Zarqa on October 1 before taking on USA and Paraguay in subsequent group matches in Amman and Irbid respectively.

The national U-17 female team qualified to their 5th straight World Cup appearance after a 10-0 aggregate win over Morocco in the final qualifying match.

The Black Maidens who were quarter finalists at the last edition of the competition, are the only African side to have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup after winning bronze in 2012.
