The tournament which will be hosted in Ghana for the first time seems to have gathered low publicity with the media losing tract of how events are unfolding.

Several questioned have been asked as how vibrant the LOC is regarding the hosting of the tournament and the readiness of Ghana as a country.

But Hon. Freda Prempeh believes all plans are underway and once the event is launched later this month, the drive will follow.

“We will officially launch the competition on March 23, 2018,” she told TV3

She also believes Ghana is ready to host the championship.

“Everything is going on smoothly. We have prepared very well for the competition. There have been an inspection from CAF and they are expected to come for the second inspection soon.

“The Accra Sports Stadium and the Cape Coast Sports Stadium will host the matches; we are also working on the Legon Sports Stadium, and the Achimota Park which will be the training pitches for the teams that will be based in Accra.

“The Ndoum Sports Stadium and the Robert Mensah Sports Stadium will also serve as training grounds for the teams in Cape Coast.

“So I can say preparation is going on very well and we can’t wait to get the competition started, she added.

Ghana will be hosting the tournament for the first time since it started in 1998 and will be the 3rd West African country to host after Nigeria and Cameroon.
