As agreed at the working session of the Executive Committee of our WAFU Zone A in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dakar, Senegal on August 23, 2014, the Mawade Wade Memorial tournament will now be hosted from December 6 – 14, 2014 in Dakar, Senegal. We are glad that the Senegalese Football Federation and the Government have consented to the organisation of this tournament in memory of the late Mawade Wade – a former Member of the CAF Executive Committee.
This tournament will provide a platform for our National teams (local players only) to showcase their talents and further help our National Associations in preparing these teams for the forthcoming CAF CHAN Competitions.
Mali, The Gambia, Senegal and Liberia have confirmed their participation. However, the latter’s participation is a concern raised because of the Ebola epidemic in that country.
