Cameroon hosts 2016 African Women Cup of Nations

The 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations will be the 12th edition of the Africa Women Cup of Nations, the international football championship organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for the women's national teams of Africa. The tournament will be held in Cameroon between 19 November and 3 December 2016. The initial dates were 8–22 October 2016, but were changed due to weather considerations. A total of eight teams will play in the tournament.
On 6 August 2015, the CAF Executive Committee decided to change the name of the tournament from the African Women's Championship to the Africa Women Cup of Nations, similar to the men's version, Africa Cup of Nations.

Draws were conducted on the sidelines of the  CAF Annual Meetings from 21-28 October 2015, by the respective Standing Committees during their meetings.

Seven teams will emerge from the qualifiers of the Africa Women Cup of Nations to join hosts Cameroon for the final tournament scheduled for 19 November to 3 December 2016.

Infrastructural work has already begun in Cameroon with regards to the African Nations Cup. This is clearly seen in the reconstruction work on going at the Fandena football stadium and the stade Annex 1&2.
