The trophy arrived in the company of Namibia Football Association (NFA) president, John Muinjo on Sunday, 14 September 2014 at the Hosea Kutako International Airport, Windhoek.
Earlier, Muinjo had presented a progress report on the 11-25 October 2014 Championship to the CAF Organising Committee for Women’s Football on Friday, 12 September 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
“The committee was overall satisfied with the progress made thus far but there are certain few critical issues that were identified through the last inspection that CAF wants us to zoom into and take care of as soon as possible.
He explained that the government will be screening the Ebola-affected countries participating and monitor them for 21 days while a Response Unit will also be available for the duration of the championship.
“It is for the very first time that there is a title sponsor for the women championship and CAF is very grateful to Telecom Namibia for coming on board in trying to make this tournament a spectacle that it should be”, he added.
Hosts Namibia are housed in Group A alongside Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria and Zambia whilst Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana and South Africa make up Group B.
The three top finishers will qualify to represent Africa at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
