HARARE – Black Rhinos Queens, the country’s representatives in the maiden CAF Women’s Champions League are ready to tussle with continental teams in this new tournament.
Chipembere Queens held their training sessions this week as the club prepares to participate in the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League.
Coach Kudakwashe Matuwi took the ladies through their paces and conducted some drills as the players race against time to gain fitness before the qualifiers commence.
Black Rhinos Queens is among eight Southern African teams which will compete to win the sole ticket to play at the CAF Women’s Champions League later this year.
The Council for Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) recently advised that the regional [COSAFA Women’s Champions League] qualifiers will be played either in June or August.
Each of the continent’s six football zones will be represented by one team at the eight-team continental finals.
The host country will provide the seventh team. The eighth team will come from the zone of the host country for the first edition, but will be drawn from the zone of the defending champions in later editions.
Black Rhinos Queens won the Zimbabwe Women Soccer League title in 2019 hence their election to represent the country in the tournament.
