Vice Chairperson of the Women’s League Board, Roseline Amoh has cautioned the CAF/FIFA Liaison Team to stay away from the organization of the African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) to be staged in Ghana.
The two-man Liaison Team had written to Confederation of African Football (CAF) to consider Tamale and Kumasi Stadia as the host venues of the competition on the blind side of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC).
Reacting to this act by the Liaison Team, Roseline Amoh, who doubles as a member of the communications team for the LOC said, “I think the Liaison team shouldn’t concern itself about the preparation on hosting the AWCON. They should allow the LOC to do its job. The mandate of the liaison team was to look after the international competitions not local competitions” Amoh told Ohene Bampoe–Brenya on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports.
“When things don’t go right, the LOC will be blamed not the liaison team so they should please allow the LOC to do its job,” she added
Madam Amoh confirmed the venues selected by CAF for the staging of the tournament.
“I got a text from CAF indicating that Accra Sports Stadium and Cape Coast Stadium will be the venues for the tournament.”
Ghana was handed the opportunity to host Africa’s Women’s flagship football competition for the first time two years ago.
The competition is expected to kick-start on November 17, 2018.
