Banyana draw Angola in COSAFA Women’s Championship


Defending champions Banyana Banyana have found out who their opponents at the 2020 COSAFA Women’s Championship will be.

The draw for the COSAFA Women’s Championships has been concluded and produced some fascinating ties for the competition that will take place in Nelson Mandela Bay from November 3-14.

Hosts South Africa were drawn in Group A and will face Eswatini, Comoros and Angola in what will be a tough pool that will provide fierce clashes.

Desiree Ellis’s troops are favourites to win the championship but Eswatini and Angola will likely provide stern tests for Banyana.

Comoros will likely to be stronger than when South Africa defeated them 17-0 last year.

Zambia head Group B and will come up against old foes Malawi and Lesotho, while Group C contains 2011 champions Zimbabwe, Botswana and Tanzania.

The top team in each group and the best runner-up will advance to the semifinals of the tournament.



The COSAFA Women’s Under-17 Championship will also be played concurrently from November 5-13 and features five sides in a single pool which will be played on a round-robin basis.

The five teams are hosts South Africa, Comoros, Tanzania, defending champions Zambia and Zimbabwe.
