Nigeria has been chosen as the new host destination for the upcoming West Africa Football Union (Wafu) Zone-B qualifying tournament for the 2023 Caf Women’s Champions League.
The 2023 edition of the sub-regional championship is seeing a second change in plans after having its schedule changed to August 18–September 3 from the original September 10–25 date.
Cote d’Ivoire were billed as the hosts.
However, in light of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) awarding the Orange Nation the rights to host the 2023 Caf Women’s Champions League, the zonal qualification process needed to find another venue, which led to Nigeria being selected as the new host nation for Wafu-B.
As the winners of the 2022/23 Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League, Ghana will be represented for a second consecutive year by Ampem Darkoa Ladies.
Delta Queens will represent new hosts Nigeria at this tournament. They just won their sixth Women’s Football League Premiership title after beating holders Bayelsa Queens last Sunday.
Champions of the respective leagues in Niger, Burkina Faso, Benin, Togo, and Cote d’Ivoire will also participate in the Wafu Zone-B qualifying tournament.
