The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have selected Ghana to host the 2018 Africa Women’s Championship.

The West African country has been awarded the hosting rights for CAF’s flagship completion, according to a publication by the state-owned Graphic Sports.

The paper reveals CAF’s Executive Committee had doubts about Ghana’s credentials but opted against awarding  the rights to countries who are inexperience when it comes to hosting a major tournament.

Ghana, one of the powerhouses in Women’s Football have competed in 11 out of the 12 editions of the competition so far only missing out in 2012 in Equatorial Guinea.

The country’s experience of successfully hosting previous CAF tournaments in recent times (the 2009 African Youth Championship and the 2000 and 2008 Africa Cup of Nations) was key.

Cameroon will host this year’s edition of the competition which begins on November 19 to December 3.
