The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has announced 25 February-7 March 2020 as the date to host the much awaited West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Women’s Cup which was postponed last year.

Bo and Makeni, the second and third largest cities in Sierra Leone, have been confirmed by the SLFA as the two venues for the competition. Both cities boast of stadia with seating capacities of 10,000 and 25,000 spectators respectively.

Eleven other nations will travel to Sierra Leone to compete for the championship.

The tournament was initially scheduled for 13-22 December 2019, but was postponed by WAFU “due to logistical concerns”.

And, as part of the build up to the competition Liberia Women’s Team drew 2-2 with their Sierra Leone counterparts in Makeni in a tournament during the festive month of December.

Women Bundesliga Championship to Begin on May 29

After the Men’s Bundesliga returned to action in Germany last week, the women’s top flight championship has been program to resume on Friday 29 May across the country.



The league will restart on Match day 17 as defending champions Wolfsburg FC will take on FC Koln, while seven-time winners 1. FFC Frankfurt face FC Sand.
There are six match days still to be played, plus a further two rearranged games. Wolfsburg lead the way heading into the end of the campaign on 46 points, eight ahead of their closest pursuers, leaving them well placed to secure a fourth consecutive league title and sixth overall.
Matters are considerably tighten in the race for the Champions League berths, with just a single point separating Bayern and Hoffenheim ahead of their head-to-head encounter on Saturday May 30.
At the opposite end of the table, safety is very much within FC Koln’s reach. Sascha Glass’s side are just two points adrift of a non-relegation spot but still have two delay games.
The women’s league is not the only competition set to resume, as the Women’s DFB Cup will also start. The quarterfinal fixtures have been scheduled for June 2 and 3.
The semi-finals are to take place on June 10 and 11, with the final in Cologne on July 4. As the federal government has decreed that mass events are forbidden until at least August 31, 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the final will also be held behind closed doors.

COVID-19 Effects: Ghana’s Female Footballers Face Tough Challenges



The chairperson of the Ghana women’s Premier League committee, Madam Hillary Boaten has complained about the negative effects of COVID-19 as many female footballers seem vulnerable. 

Football activities in Ghana were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country as Ghana clocks close to 6000 cases of COVID-19.

She also stressed on the fact that female footballers in her league lack basic equipment to perform self training as this will go a long way to affect the future of female footballers.

“I felt so sad when I was told one of my girls has been impregnated during the lockdown period a player with very good promise and its so worrying. I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dump” she told Adom FM’s Alex Kobina Stonne.

Madame Boeteng also  lamented on the ability of the female clubs to maintain the safety protocols even if the government lifts the ban on public gathering.

” Even if we decide to play under closed doors, how can the women’s league committee raise money for clubs especially when players are not allowed to even train on their own”, she concluded. 

June 30th has been set for football resumption in Ghana but the GFA is still in talks with the government to see how the set date might be possible.
