Ghana to host “spectacular” WAFU Zone B U-17 Cup of Nations, say LOC


The Chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the 2024 West African Football Union (WAFU) Zone B U-17 Cup of Nations, Gideon Fosu, has promised a “spectacular” tournament when it kicks off in Accra, Ghana, next month.

Fosu, speaking to after a LOC meeting on Tuesday (23 April), expressed his confidence in delivering the best edition of the competition yet.

“I think the LOC is poised to make sure that the experience for this U-17 tournament is exceptional,” Fosu declared. “We’re seeking to bring something new to this tournament. Hopefully, Ghanaians and our West African counterparts will see a spectacular tournament in Accra.”

The LOC meeting focused on finalising plans across various aspects, as Fosu explained: “We talked about security, the training pitches, venue for matches, the various things that needs to be done at the stadium. Accommodation, transportation, spectatorship and several other pertinent areas were discussed. We’ve been able to cover grounds.”

“We have already started work but this serves as a guide for us to continue what we have started or to add on to what we have started. So, I think the meeting was fruitful,” Fosu concluded.

The WAFU Zone B U-17 Cup of Nations will be held from 15-19 May. Hosts Ghana will battle it out against Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo, Niger and Benin for regional glory and a coveted qualification spot for the 2025 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations.
