AS FAR wants to do better than in 2021

AS FAR is determined to go as far as possible during the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Women’s Champions League, scheduled from October 30 to November 13 in Rabat and Marrakech, assured the coach of the military training , Mohammed Amine Alioua.

AS FAR, bronze medalists at the last edition, will play in group A with Simba Queens SC (Tanzania), Green Buffaloes (Zambia) and Determine Girls (Liberia).

Pool B includes Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa), Bayelsa Queens (Nigeria), Wadi Degla (Egypt) and TP Mazembe (DR Congo).

“We will approach this competition game by game. The participating teams are on an equal footing and the level will certainly be higher than in the previous edition,” said the AS FAR coach in a statement to MAP.

The team completed a training camp at the Mohammed VI football complex in Maâmora, he said, noting that the morale of the players is high and they are determined to honor the national women’s football.

Mr. Alioua indicated, in this sense, that the third place occupied by AS FAR during the previous edition of the Women’s Champions League and the participation of certain players in the African Cup of Nations (CAN-2022 ) allowed players to gain more experience.

“AS FAR will spare no effort in order to represent the national colors with dignity, especially since it will evolve in front of its public”, he underlined.

The Military will cross swords with Simba Queens SC, this Sunday at night (8:00 p.m.) at the HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan sports complex in Rabat, during the first day of group A.

On their second outing, they will face the Green Buffaloes on November 2, before reuniting with Determine Girls on the 5th of next month.

The competition will be played at the HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan sports complex in Rabat and at the Grand Stade de Marrakech.

The final of the tournament will take place at the Prince Moulay Abdellah sports complex in Rabat.

According to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), the winners of the competition will win the sum of 400,000 USD, while the unfortunate finalists will receive 250,000 USD. The two semi-finalists will each receive 200,000 USD.
