The Black Queens will set a training base in South Africa ahead of their anticipated participation at the African Women Championships (AWC) in Mauritius later in the year.

Ghana is chasing a resumed participation at the biannual gathering for elite women national teams across the continent having failed to qualify for the last edition.

Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Minister of Youth and Sports said on Wednesday that ?The national women?s team; Black Queens are currently playing the qualifying series for the Africa Women?s Championships.

?When they qualify, there are plans to have them camped in South Africa for the tournament.?

The Queens face Ethiopia in the second qualifying round for the tournament after brushing aside Burkina Faso 6-0 over two legs.

The team is expected to gather in the first week of April to begin preparations for the match with Ethiopia scheduled for May.

Ghana remain a force at the AWC despite failing to win the competition they have always stared as pre tournament favourites alongside Nigeria over two decades. GNA
