WAFU B U-20: Nigeria to Face Burkina Faso As Ghana get Cote D’Ivoire


By Sedara Philip

Ghana have been handed a tough draw to face neighbours and arch rivals Cote d’Ivoire in two separate regional tournaments from next month following Monday’s draw.
The Black Princesses will take on their Ivorian counterparts at the group stage of the WAFU B Girls U20 Championship in Kumasi next month.

The Black Satellites were also drawn to play hosts Cote d’Ivoire at the highly anticipated WAFU B Boys U20 Championship following the draw at the headquarters of the West African Football Union (WAFU B) in Abidjan.

The event, supervised by the Wafu B Executive Director Boureima Balima, paves the way for this year’s competitions in the region to get underway after last month’s training for match officials.

Set to be held from 20th May to 3rd June 2023, the prestigious WAFU B Girls U20 Championship will see teams from seven member countries vying for regional glory.

The host nation, Ghana, will serve as the venue for this prestigious championship, with matches to be played in the bustling city of Kumasi.

Group A will see Ghana joined by Benin and Cote d’Ivoire, while Group B features Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Togo.
