Copper Queens Choose Levy Mwanawasa Stadium for Angola Match
The Zambia Women’s National Team is poised to make history as they gear up to play their first match at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium next month.
The Copper Queens are set to host Angola on December 5th in the second round of the 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers final round.
This significant development was confirmed by FAZ President Andrew Kamanga in his weekly update, “The President’s Corner.”
Expressing confidence, Kamanga believes that the Copper Queens will continue to make strides, seeing the qualification for WAFCON as crucial momentum leading up to the February Paris 2024 Olympic qualifier.
In his update, Kamanga stated, “Finally, the Copper Queens commence camp today for the 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola set for November 29 in Luanda.
The 2022 WAFCON bronze winners and 2023 FIFA World Cup debutants will host Angola on December 5 at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola. The winner over two legs will qualify for the WAFCON, with Zambia aiming for a third consecutive appearance.”
He continued, emphasizing the potential impact of WAFCON qualification on the upcoming Olympic qualifier, “The WAFCON qualification could provide the right momentum ahead of the February Paris 2024 Olympic qualifier against Ghana.
We have no doubt that the Copper Queens will continue to make history given the levels of investment we have put in.”
Anticipation is building among Copperbelt fans, who will have the opportunity to witness the 2022 WAFCON bronze medalists showcase their strength. Zambia kicks off their two-legged encounter away in Angola on November 29th before hosting the match at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on December 5th.
Seeking a fourth consecutive appearance at WAFCON, Zambia aims to build on their highest-ever podium finish, clinching the bronze at the expense of Nigeria in the 2022 WAFCON held in Morocco.
