Green Buffaloes Suffer Covid Setback Before COSAFA CAF Womens Champions League Kick Off


Green Buffaloes have suffered a setback as they commence their campaign in the inaugural COSAFA Zone CAF Women’s Champions League qualifying tournament today in Durban in South Africa.

Buffaloes will be without four unnamed players heading into their opening Group B game against Black Rhino Queens of Zimbabwe.

The quartet is reportedly ruled out after testing positive for Covid-19.

Meanwhile, this will be the two sides first-ever meeting that kicks off at 14h00 at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Meanwhile, with just two games each to play in Group B that contains just three clubs, nothing but the 3 points would do today for Buffaloes ahead of their final game against Tura Magic of Namibia on August 31.

The top two finishers in Group B advance to the semifinals on September 2 to play the other top two finishers from Group A that contains four clubs.

Ultimate winner in the September 4 final will represent COSAFA at the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League final to be hosted by Egypt at the end of 2021.
