A group of ten countries have been announced for an amputee football tournament slated for this year’s African Para Games in Accra, Ghana.
This is according to the list published by the Confederation of African Amputee Football’s (CAAF) secretary general Peter Oloo in a letter to organizers.
It follows “wide consultation” with stakeholders as no CAAF international matches have been played on the continent since 2021.
Hosts Ghana have been named alongside Liberia, Angola, Tanzania and Morocco.
Rwanda, Cameroon, Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya complete the line-up.
Angola reached the final of the World Amputee Football Cup in Istanbul in October, losing to hosts Turkey.
Tanzania won the African title in 2021 when CAAF last hosted an event.
The African Para Games is still due to go ahead between September 3 and 12 this year, despite the African Games in Accra being postponed to next year amid a crippling economic crisis in the country and a dispute over marketing rights.
This year’s event is due to be the first ever African Para Games.
