The first Wafu tournament, hosted by Fox Sports, was held in September 2017 and saw the host nation Ghana crowned champions in what was a very successful event.

Senegal will become the first Zone A team to host for next year’s two-week tournament in September 2019.

Nigeria has been named as home to the third edition of the Wafu Cup of Nations, also to take place in September 2021.

All matches will be broadcast exclusively for football fans across Africa, and the world, live on FOX Sports, the global leader in premium sports broadcasting.

The multi-year partnership between FOX Sports and the West African Football Union (Wafu) Zones A and B was announced in December 2016, to provide a long-term injection of investment into infrastructure, training and development of West African football, across 16 countries over a period of 12 years.

The first edition of the Wafu Cup of Nations was beamed live across 125 million households with over 300 million viewers globally.
