The 2021 Africa women’s club tournament will be hosted in North Africa in November, as confirmed by Royal Moroccan Football Federation on Wednesday
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation on Wednesday announced that the country will be the hosts for the inaugural Caf Women’s Champions League.
The Confederation of Africa Football had opened the hosting rights bid on Thursday, March 4, for the maiden edition of the continental women’s club competition to be held in or before December.
In September, South Africa expressed an interest to stage the competition, while Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea were also expected to join the race after their botched Awcon 2022 bids.
According to Caf last month, the winning bid will be revealed by Caf’s Executive Committee following the closure of the bidding deadline set for Wednesday, March 31.
The continent’s football body also stated: “The Total Caf Women’s Champions League 2021 competition will be organized during the period of October, November or December each year as per the resolution of the Caf Executive Committee.
“Seven teams will qualify for the final tournament through qualifiers organized by the zonal unions in addition to the champion club from the host country who gains automatic qualification.” Ghana in West Africa has already chosen Hasaacas ladies to feature for this maiden edition tournament.
